Punish the drunk drivers by making them work in a mortuary

I think Thailand has hit on the right formula to punish those drunk drivers. The latest punishment is to send them to the mortuary to work. This method forces the drunk drivers to face the result of their consequences. I think that is the perfect solution. Since they want to drink and drive, and they are likely to cause death of the innocents, they have to bear the responsibility of handing the dead. This will drive home the seriousness of the offence. I sure hope my country can implement the same punishment. It is better than forcing them to pay a fine or spend their time in jail, and let the taxpayers pay for their food and accommodation.
It happens every year with gruesome dependability. As Thailand celebrates its new year, hundreds of people are killed and thousands injured in traffic collisions, many of them involving drunk drivers.

Drunk drivers have no place on the streets. They are putting the life of many in danger.

@scheng1 There should really be hard punishments for drunk driving.

Yes, I think that is a good punishment. I always think we should let the people who break the rules to learn the lesson, not just pay a fine. For people who are rich, fine doesn't mean anything to them at all.

That is true. If we let the drunk drivers handle the badly damaged corpses as a result of road accident, they will definitely change their way.

I can agree with that, then offer them a job if they need it and if they are learning from there mistakes. Society would work so much better like that and do think also it would keep people from forgetting.

I think once they know how is it like to work in a mortuary, they will stay away from drink driving. I doubt they will want to work for there as a career.

@scheng1 That is fine also, but people should always keep the door open because you never really do know. Life is nothing nice and not everything fits in a package with a pretty bow.

That sounds like a tough but unique punishment. I think they should have to pay a fine as well though.

They have tried, and not successful. Thailand has one of the highest accidents rate in the whole world because of the drunk driving. I think the government is really desperate to save lives.

@scheng1 Wow I am shocked to hear that. Then again Thailand and all those areas have huge amounts of people.. the more people the more people there are to be involved in accidents. So many that is part of it.

@shaggin The huge number of cars and people is not the problem. The problem is the high rate of fatal accidents. When the rate of fatal accident tops the world, something drastic must be done.

I never get why there are people out there that would drink and drive...why risk other people's lives and their own.

I think someone in Thailand must be very smart to come up with this idea. It does not spend taxpayers' money, and they get free labor to help out in the mortuary. I think once this is implemented, nobody dare to drink and drive again.

That might be a good solution.
