Oh come on with these ridiculous polls. Most accidents are not DUI related on the norm. If you want to address someone relevant, then focus on drivers who serve the public. Otherwise boring issue.

I did not vote as the main criteria for this discussion is that the laws are fine but not enough being done to enforce all year, not just on holidays.

 More graphic (blood & guts) movies should be shown by the licencing authorities at the presentations to show the carnage of the results of drinking & driving

No good altering something because it didn't work when the reason it didn't work was very little daily police presence..The same reason folk don't wear a crash hat, or children going to school on m/cycles...

 

To me, in LOS, nobody cares about anything until some one ends up in a box. Then the money pointing finger comes out...

......but then they believe that they jump out of their box so they can carry on regardless in their next life.

For a simple DUI, no accident, no injuries/fatalities, loss of license for a minimum of a year and at least a month in jail. There needs to be a deterrent. Since approximately 25% of Thais drive without a license anyway, the jail term is needed. For an accident resulting in serious injury and/or death, permanent loss of license and at least a year in jail, if not longer. I have zero patience or tolerance for this issue, having lost friends to drunk drivers.

hahahahaha, get less than that back in Aus and they are anal about <deleted> like this !!
