Police want certain jail sentence for drunken driving

Wed, Aug 03, 2016, 03:43 PM
The Hyderabad police are contemplating certain jail sentence in case of drunken driving which is on the rise in the city. Last month alone, the police collected Rs 39 lakh from the drunken drivers.

The police in all presented 1084 drunken drivers before the courts, and half of them were given a jail sentence. That is why the police are considering certain jail sentence in such cases.

The law is being so drawn up as to vest the police with powers to send the drunken drivers to jail. The police want to do away with small fines for the drunken drivers. They want to fight the menace that is not only a public nuisance but also dangerous to road users by tightening the laws. They may also consider cancellation of the driving licence for life in case of drunken driving.

There have been cases in the city wherein underage drunken drivers caused accidents, taking a toll.
