Take the drivers car and crush it if found with any alcohol in their system.


I never touch a drop if I am driving If I can do it then why can't others.

I'm in favour of a tiered system of drink driving and penalties depending on how drunk the person is behind the wheel and how many times they've been caught.

I'd like to see penalties starting at say 5,000 rmb and rising to over 100,000 rmb for a 4 time offender who is twice the legal limit or more.

If someone is seriously injured or killed then the penalty should include a massive punitive fine, payment of a large sum to the injured or deceased's family and automatic prison time for a good period of time plus lifetime ban from driving.

Why am I so against drink driving? I've lost a few friends who were killed or died as a result of drink driving but I also had my ex-fiancée killed by a drunk driver many years ago.

let me give you a similar case, if a guy use a gun to shoot another person, if the person dead or wounded, then the shooter get criminal charges, if not, then lessened or exempted.

what do you think?
Refreshed.

I wish it would be a bad joke but it's a fact and I've seen several of peoples lives destroyed by the authorities just because they've taken a beer on a park bench a number of times. They are then regarded as addicts and lose driving licenses and much more but, most importantly, they are not considered to be able to custody of children taken away from the parents to grow up at the institution instead, often with sad results.

It may be mentioned that Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Löfven grew up in different foster homes, which is ever more common in Sweden.
