In addition, Somsak revealed that there were 4,452 drunk driving cases in 2019, an increase over the 2,944 cases in 2018. Thirty-six of them were repeat offenders. “After this, we will be even stricter in controlling drunk driving as well as increasing the penalty and introducing new measures to handle repeat offenders” he added.
“Drunk driving causeds a lot of damage to others” he said. “Although the government has increased its campaigns, offenders appear not to worry about driving after a few drinks.”
The ministry will conduct narcotics use in drivers around the clock and will also be checking those driving coaches and vans travelling back to Bangkok after the festival.
