“Drive slowly if drunk” – New Year Thai road sign stuns the Japanese | Samui Times

Japanese media were laughing at Thailand yesterday after ANN News broadcast a picture of a Thai road sign that said: Mao Khap Cha-chaa – If you’re drunk, drive slowly. 

Japan has very strict drink driving laws while Thailand is sometimes seen as a joke in this regard, notes Thaivisa. 

The media claimed to have confronted officials in Nakorn Ratchasima about it only to be told that it was impossible to stop DUI – so they were just appealing for drunks to drive slowly at New Year. 

Sanook reported on the story with part of a headline that stated “Media from the land of sushi absolutely confused”. 

They pointed out that Thailand does not allow drink driving.
