I bet they were still drunk when they woke up and continued to drive.

 

Would you have robbed them?

Of their keys.

In the UK, if you're just in the car with the keys I believe you can be done for 'being drunk in charge of a vehicle', even if the engine ain't running, and you haven't been, or will not be driving.

(Someone will correct me if I'm wrong).

You're correct, a few years ago a mate of mine had a few over the top & decided to sleep it off in the back of the car in the rear pub car park... police did a circuit later and investigated.. he got done !

I think it depends on city/rural policing... he was unlucky.

The accused, a taxi biker, reportedly said that he targeted mostly drunk persons who had parked their vehicles for sleeping. The accused said he would first try to awake them. In case, the men continued sleeping, he robbed them.

It would be hot, but wouldn't you have the windows up and lock the car doors?

Would be worth the cost of the petrol to lock it and idle the engine and run the AC. Unless there is fear of it running out in the next 12 hours or so!!

"There are scores of bars that practise this technique and quite shamefacedly". 

You're claiming the the owners/managers of bars plan to rob their drunk customers after they've left the premises in their vehicles?  Seriously? 

 

Presumably, you mean "quite unashamedly", the opposite of "quite shamefacedly"!

Forgive my errors - too early in the morning. 

'he targeted mostly drunk persons' was the practice to which I was referring.  The mamasan used to short change drunks (me) when they were paying for room hire.  I asked the girl involved & she agreed it was always 300 baht & her share was 100.  Again not a trace of a blush.

'shamefacedly' started out as 'unabashed' mutated into 'unashamedly' but lost its 'un'.

If you had the money, a good barrister, & the inclination, maybe he could make the case that a pub car park is in fact private property, as well as there being no 'intent' to drive.

Must be one of the hardest charges to 'get off' from, but many years ago I think Boxing promoter Frank Warren did just that, with a very good (v expensive) barrister. If memory serves, the kicker was that Franks urine sample had been stored at room temperature for more than a certain period of time. He wasn't banned from driving anyway.

Why does anyone deserve to get robbed? They were sleeping off their drunken state, not driving!

Pah.... shouldn't even take  a car when going out drinking and likely were still drunk when they decided to move on. They deserve to be robbed of their car keys.

Better than waking up with a sore botty.😘

Actually..... the local Ban Chang news kind of hints at that may well be the case....
