But drunk drivers who are rich will only get a reasonable fine and allowed to drive away.

I would like to think this is a note of admiration without any inference of a "holier than thou" inclination.

Thank you anyway!

A shout out to all those who believe that driving within the law has some element of virtue contained therein.

Whats the  points  for  tailgating,  pulling out of  a side  road without  looking, changing lanes without signalling, overtaking into oncoming  traffic, being a  retard?

Shirley you can't be serious?

(And don't call me Shirley)

 

What a joke..

Farcical.

 

Another knee jerk attempt at law enforcement by children...

 

They should have tattoos on their todgers saying,

"Not to be used for breeding purposes"

 

Start looking at what other countries are doing and replicate it.

Disgusting! In UK even just over the alcohol limit leads to a court appearance with an automatic 12 month disqualification and a hefty fine (unlimited) or up to 6 months imprisonment! After such a conviction, your insurance premium will increase considerably. Causing death by careless driving when under the influence of alcohol or drugs could lead to up to 14 years imprisonment! 2 points on your licence is NOT a deterrent, but a licence to kill the next unsuspecting, blameless person on the road.

This is NOT the Uk. Brazil have a similar system for low level drink driving. Points only for a few beers. Have an accident and you are in deep doo doo though. A far more practical and realistic system.

Not everyone who has three beers turns into a homicidal driving maniac as the Western Governments want s to believe and artificially construct social pressure to do support this.

Drunk driving...should be a ban from driving for a least a year.

  Not a slap on the wrist of a couple of points.

Brown paper bags over ride everything.

Great news. We can still undertake at any speed we chose or floor it in town. Maybe the author just did not add speeding 🤔🙄

.Hmmm ... 3 or 4 points for drunk driving.

Not in love with Aussie penalties due driving over the set limit ?

Does LOS have alcohol blood limits? Being a non drinker I’m not up to date with whether LOS does or not?

if they don’t they I respectfully suggest they get their collective legislative and judicial <deleted> into gear and make this law and enforce it!

points fir driving drunk what a farce ... suspension fines of significant size and even jail if repeat offender.

0.05 equivalent to OZ for a normal driver. No 0.02 for probationary driver or 0.0 for others such as truck and commercial drivers as far as I'm aware.

Mind you drink driving is a relatively small proportion of accidents these days In Oz and I suspects elsewhere. Speeding, tiredness and the ubiquitous mobile phone usage far outweighs that.

Read a study about a bloke who goes to a barbie after work. gets a few beers into him with his mates and the wife picks him up. All good. But the wife had been up half the night before with a young child, worked all day and got hubbie at 11pm. She was a higher risk of having an accident than the hubbie who was three parts to the wind due to being tired.

Why is anyone even bothering to post on here? Do you know how many Thais are driving without a licence anyway? How may have unlicensed vehicles? How many are not wearing headgear? In all these cases they do not have any insurance. Pathetic law enforcement - why do they even publicise these laws when they do not enforce them? Illegal for breakdown vehicles to show emergency vehicle lights??? Is that an ambulance up ahead - no it is some guy selling spare tyres.

Having said all of that I still live here because it is better than UK and Boris (Trump) Johnson.
