Prime Minister wants drink drivers licenses to be impounded


BANGKOK – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has thanked officers and the public for cooperating with the government during the New Year holiday so that no violent incident took place.

The PM on Monday said he was still concerned about losses caused by road accidents. He added that he would not cancel his order, under Section 44 of the interim charter, which had been enforced to prevent road accidents. However, Gen.Prayut said he had instructed relevant officers to consider impounding driver’s licenses instead of vehicles of drink drivers.

Gen.Prayut refused to answer the media’s questions about his concerns for the current political situation.
