Alcohol and Driving - Indian Law
Drunken Driving Law in India:
In India, while driving a motor vehicle, if a person has a Blood Alcohol Level (BAC) exceeding 30 mg of intake per 100 ml of blood detected by a Breathalyzer, he or she is booked under 'first offense'. This consists of imprisonment for a term, which may extend up to six months, or with a fine up to two thousand rupees or both.
For a second or subsequent offense, if committed within three years of the commission of the previous similar offense, he or she will face an imprisonment of a term, which may extend to two years, or with fine, which may extend to three thousand rupees or with both.
Despite the strictures of the Motor Vehicle Act, many drivers get away and thus drunken driving has become a menace to Indian Society.
