Video: Drunk as a skunk - Thai driver ushers in Songkran 2017

BANGKOK: -- Hopefully it is not a sign of things to come - the antics of a drunk driver caught on tape got the Thai online world commenting as the Songkran holidays began.

 

Three clips posted to the "Mem Pho Dam" page showed a Thai drunk driver crashing into a parked car. Then seemingly oblivious to what he has done he continues swigging in his pick-up's cab, reported Thai Rath.

 

He finally emerges and passes out on the sidewalk.

 

Later police and insurance agents arrive. He claims he works for a member of parliament but no one is really buying his incoherent ramblings.

 

He is finally led away to the police station.

 

Thais online said it really is time for people like this to lose both their car and their license - and the authorities should have the power of Article 44 to do it.

You don't need 44. 

 

Just enforce the existing laws.

Inactive posts coming for those that disturbed his fun holiday if it transpires that he does work in this responsible position.:wacko:

This shows that in Thailand consciousness of nusisance in this country is growing.

 

Makes me hopeful that it will spread and lead to necessary actions

The sad fact is that many Thai people believe it is OK to drink and drive, this may be due to the ineffective fines and police prosecution of offenders.  Of course the solution is simple yet it will never happen.

Shows the lack of mentality. Should not matter who you are even if it was Prayut himself he should be locked up. But, hey, this IS Thailand.

They would bring him to the police station give him a cup of coffee and tell him to drive home Look every one of us have seen Thais so drunk and cant even stand up and get into the car and drive home Its is part of the culture and they will always get away with it. Police never enforce the law so good luck and drink on

Or it might be due to stupidity and a complete lack of responsibility.

That imbicille could wipe out the family of any of us and quite likely get away with it :sad:

existing laws are fine from 1500, 20,000THB. 

Not heavy enough.Thats why the the cry for a heavier punishment. I would agree.
