        England - One year supervision, 1 year jail, 250.00 fine

        Poland - Offenders are jailed, fined and forced to attend political lectures.

        El Salvadore - Your first conviction is your last, Execution by firing squad

        Norway - The penalty is 3 weeks in jail hard labor,one year loss of license. Second offense within 5 years your license is revoked for life.

        France - Three years loss of license, 1 year jail time, $1,000 fine.

        South Africa - The penalty is a 10 year jail sentence, or the equivalent of $10,000 fine or both.

        Finland/Sweden - Automatic one year jail time at hard labor.

        Turkey - Drunks are taken 30 miles from town by police and forced to walk back under escort

        Bulgaria - A second conviction results in execution.

        Russia - License is revoked for life.

        Malaya - The driver is jailed if he is married the wife is jailed too.

        Australia - The names of the drivers are posted in the local newspapers under the heading "He's drunk and in Jail"

        So you think you got it tough.. what laws have you found to be Tough or not so tough elsewhere?

        I've seen this list before, the one in Malaya cracks me up...its like guilt by association!
        IMHO the drunk driving laws here aren't tough enough but the Bulgarians are going a bit too far.
        I know that punishments for commiting all types on non violent crimes  in Singapore are harsh. Like spitting on the side walk can result in jail time and a serious fine.

        Yeah, but the problem with some of those third world countries is that the written law is somewhat of a joke. The police are more corrupt than criminals. In the majority of those cases, the offender just pays off the cops or judge.

        I wonder how it would be here if, your first conviction was your last for drunk driving in USA death by execution... i wonder if there would be less drunk drivers OR more deaths by execution...

        I think more people would be against the death penalty.

        OMG, that's insane.  If I live in El Salvador or Bulgari and I have alcohol problem, I'll try to move out of the country asap.  Execution?  :o drunk driving get the penalty like convicted murder, dam.

        after reading this "Malaya - The driver is jailed if he is married the wife is jailed too" makes me  :o , this is the craziest penalty ever  :o

        a husband was drunk driving home and got pulled over by the cops.  He was handcuffed and put in the back of the police car.  The cops drive to his house, knock on the door in the middle of the night.
        officer:  open the door, this is the police
        wife:  what's going on officer? (she asks in half sleep voice) this is late.
        officer:  your husband got caught for drunk driving and we'r gonna put him in jail and by law, we come here to get you also.
        wife:  What? I didnt even know he was out there drinking officer, I have 10 little children to take care of, they will die if I go to jail
        officer:  sorry to hear that, but you've gotta go with us, ask your relative if they can take care of them for you.

        wife:  cry, please dont, my children will die, I have noone can help me at this time right now.
        officer:   I'm sorry, but we have to enforce the law.  If something happen to your children, your husband is the blame.
        the  10 year old boy, Bobby, come out, holding his mom and ask, "Mom, where r you going?"
        wife:  Bob, here's a little money I have left, buy some milk, some food, and try to take care of your sibblings while we'r gone, you hear me? me and your dad have to take a little vacation right now
        Bob:  when you will be back mom? what if I run out of this money?
        wife:  we dont know yet, but we'll try to get back asap and if you are out of the money, take all of your sibblings outside, sit them in the front door and begging our neighbor for help, you hear me??
        Bob:  yes mom

        isn't that insane, very tough very stiff penalties, some countries don't even allow booze at all, and you can face death for having it... and it is real

        that would be horrible taaa.. imagining that kind of scenario.. hopefully the husband won't be so stupid and drive while drunk!

        "England - One year supervision, 1 year jail, 250.00 fine"

        You will be banned from driving for a minimum of 1 year.  They generally add on 4 months to that ban so it would be 1 year 4 months but it can be reduced by those 4 months if you take a drink awareness course.  The max ban is generally 3 years.  Fines range up to about £3000.  But - they are clamping down even more at the moment.

        Damn right too.

        I think the death by firing squad is a little over the top though.  Very scary laws indeed.

        interesting thread sweetie:)

        i somehow think, those badass punishments do tend to lower the crime rate, be it drunk driving or thievery or anything else.
        maybe if they put out the death penalty, and leave the hard jail time and fines, i think they should do it here too:
        to me everybody's free to party, drink nd do drugs, but take responsibility:
        have someone long to be the driver, rent  a cab, or use bicycles or cheap motels, take the early bus or train.
        you name it: there never need to drive drunk or influenced and cause major deaths by accident.
        somehow people think their better then the booze they tke, aand feel that this one time is not bad, but thats how all those accidents happen.
        the morality is low in our western society, and even lower when under influence:)

        Here they have it backwards, though i don't do any kind of drugs, theres a no tolerance for possesion of drugs as well as under influence, you can get some serious prison time, for alcohol.. it's a 3 strikes you're out... i think the law should be just as stiff for driving while drunk as it is for having drugs and being under the influence driving. Give a drunk driver 3 chances? Makes no sense to me.
