Drunk teens to face tougher drink driving laws from today | Samui Times

Tougher measures to combat drink driving come into force today.

In future anyone under twenty years of age will be considered drunk if they have an alcohol reading of just 20 milligrams.

Presently the drink drive limit in Thailand is 50 milligrams.

The new measures also apply to all temporary license holders and those who are caught without a license or driving while suspended.

Thai Rath said that the new measures are as a result of changes to Ordinance 21 relating to alcohol levels in the blood while driving.

Police from May 31st will be able to prosecute those in the categories mentioned caught with the lower level of alcohol in their blood.
