China

Here the penalties for drunk driving, at first glance are not as strict. The driver, who got behind the wheel drunk, risking to get a fine of $300 and up to six months of imprisonment. Often it is limited to administrative arrest for 15 days and deprivation of rights for up to six months. But now, if the drunk driver gets into an accident where there are victims, it is sentenced to death.

USA

Here for drunk driving, the guilty faces a fine of up to $1000, and, depending on the circumstances of the breach, short-term imprisonment or correctional labor. The main thing consists in the unavoidability and transparency of punishment. Such cases are widely reported in the press, which periodically trampled on the reputation of some “stars” caught driving drunk.

Japan

And in this country the punishment for not only the drunk driver, but its adult passengers. For those who just agrees to ride in the passenger seat with a drunk driver, a penalty equivalent to $3000. As for the driver, he will pay at least $6700 penalty and risk to spend in prison for the next 5 years. The amount of the fine depends on the severity of the consequences of drunk driving. When in 2001 a Japanese person sitting behind the wheel in a drunken state gave the fatal crash (exit to the oncoming traffic and head-on collision with the car that caused the death of its driver), the court sentenced him to a fine of $2.5 million.
