Anti-drunk driving campaigns are not apparently having much effect in the south, with a report from Tuesday (actually, the early hours of Wednesday, November 29, 2017) detailing police DUI arrests on one small section of ZhongHua (JhongHua) Road.

Between 2 and 3 a.m., police nabbed NINE drunk drivers, most on scooters but several car drivers as well.

One suspect attempted to turn around and drive the wrong way on JhongHua Bridge … resulting in a mini police chase. The suspect was found to be under the limit for alcohol, but his attempt to evade the cops earned him an arrest for ‘actions causing public harm.’

What do you think would help stem these near-epidemic levels of drunk driving? Higher fines? REAL jail time for repeat offenders? –One group has called for flogging, which seems a bit excessive.
