Do you agree with it?
maybe, if those lie to say not driving but caught driving, double the punishment to the driver,passengers only.

Drink driving: Learn from the Japanese
TRAFFIC accidents involving drink drivers are on the rise again.
It is time that the authorities implemented stricter laws to reduce this. Recently, I was in Japan and learnt there are strict laws on drink driving there.
In pubs, before a customer orders a drink, the bartender will ask if he is driving. If so, the customer must hand over his car keys before he gets a drink. The pub must provide transport to take customers home.
For anyone caught drink driving, the traffic police will also charge the pub owner, drinking partners and all passengers inside the drink driver's vehicle.
Perhaps the authorities here can adopt some of the Japanese rules on drink driving to reduce the rise of this menace.
