Stiffer Drink Driving Penalties to be Enforced

The “No Driving with Alcohol Campaign Network” is pushing its concepts at a conference next week with the Court Director of Region No.2 and the Police Department of Chonburi. This will allow for imprisonment of people who drive with alcohol, and will be extended to eight provinces in eastern Thailand. It will include national enforcement, with drunken drivers of a motorcycle being liable for 5-days imprisonment and drunken drivers of a car will be liable for 7-10 days in the “monkey house.”

Bangkok, – 19th December 2009 [Pattaya Daily News]: – Dr. Thanaphong Jinnawong, who is the Manager of the Road Safety National Health Foundation, spoke to their associated networks, regarding this Thai Road Safety campaign. Research into increasing penalties has recently led to discussion with representatives of the Court and officers of the National Police. Penalties in the past were hinged upon each judge’s discretion depending upon the severity of the case, but now this is about to change.

On 23rd December 2009 there will be the conference involving all eight provinces in east Thailand and this may decide on immediate imprisonment for those driving with over a 50-milligram percentage of alcohol in their blood. (The Trat Province was the first to statistically reveal that they had 16 serious prosecution cases in progress). After this the campaign network is having further conferences in the other remaining provinces with the courts and police, so findings and recommendations are likely to be all similar.

Mr. Jinnawong referred to legal punishment which in the past, when they apprehend alcoholic drivers, the court procedure was 2-days (48 hours) detention, with a standard fine of 5,000 – 20,000 baht. The maximum detention was under 1-year and the driver’s license would be revoked or retained. Now drinking and driving a motorcycle will be judged immediately and will probably result in 5-days imprisonment. Furthermore, drinking and driving a car may see you face 7-10 days imprisonment, but the days can be adjusted depending on the circumstances and the situation).

The current penalties also includes acts that cause people bodily or mental damage, with jail terms of 1-5 years, fines of 20,000 – 100,000 Baht, plus a revoked driving license for not less than 1-year. It appears that these penalties could be increased to 6-years imprisonment, fines of 40,000 -120,000 Baht, and still include revokement of your driving license.
