New law stops the right to refuse a breathalyzer test in Thailand

Prior to the 31st of December 2014, when stopped by the police, anybody refusing to take a breathalyzer test would be faced with a one thousand baht fine. Those who took the test and were found to be over the limit would face up to one year in prison and a twenty thousand baht fine, so not surprisingly most simply refused the test and handed over one thousand baht. However, in an amendment to the law the day of handing over one thousand baht are over. Those refusing to take a breathalyzer test in Thailand will now be assumed to be over the limit and will likely be arrested and charged with drunk driving under section 43 (2) of the Traffic Act which prohibits driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs.
