Nepal gets tough on drinking and driving

Apart from being fined, those caught must sit through an hour-long lecture on the dangers of drunk-driving.

    Nepal has had rules on drunk-driving before but it was rarely enforced. Now, the country is trying to implement the rules and party-goers are having a difficult time adjusting.
     
    If there is any alcohol in the blood, the fine is $12. But even those caught with a small amount of alcohol in their blood must sit through an hour-long lecture on the dangers of drunk-driving to get their licences back.
