“I’m Ok to drive” says Thai bus driver as he collapses on sobriety test

A Thai bus driver who flattened several signposts asked police to do a sobriety test to prove that he was not drunk and capable of driving.

OK to driveAs Khwanchai Maturot attempted to walk in a straight line he fell over and officers had to virtually carry him to the station where they found an alcohol level of 283 miligrams, reported Thairath.

Khwanchai did mention that after delivering factory workers he had indulged in two bottles of Lao Khao spirits and was on his way to see his girlfriend.

He had earlier demolished several signposts on the Ang Thong bypass. A well known DJ from the local radio station called Chokchai Thongsak, 53,saw what happened and realized his Centre Radio sign was one of those knocked down. So he went to the bus that had stopped and asked the driver to come down and discuss restitution for the sign.

Khwanchai, a native of Ayuthaya, refused to come down and so police were called. The driver told officers he was perfectly capable of driving even though he was slurring his words. He managed to convince officers that a sobriety test was worthwhile but as he attempted to walk in a straight line he collapsed in a heap and was carted off to the station.
