Yeah, most of these are wrong... especially El Salvador:

According to the law in El Salvador, you may be found guilty of DUI if either your blood/breath alcohol content (BAC) is over the legal limit or, regardless of your BAC level, your consumption of alcohol was enough to impair you ability to operate a motor vehicle.

Enforcement
In El Salvador, police enforcement of DUI cases is similar to that performed in the U.S. There is no policy of random breath testing, so police will generally only initiate an investigation when evidence suggests or supports that a DUI has occurred. This includes an officer's personal observations of irregular driving, statements from witnesses or investigations after an accident.

Zero Tolerance
Under El Salvador laws, the legal limit is .01. For all intents and purposes, this amounts to a zero tolerance for drinking and driving. Additionally, unlike in other countries such as the U.S., which imposes different levels depending on whether you are a beginner, experienced or commercial driver, in El Salvador, the legal limit applies to all drivers no matter what level.

Penalties
Under the law, a conviction for DUI results in license suspension and seizure of your vehicle. Additionally, police have the authority to arrest and fine you if your DUI incident is particularly grievous.

Anti-Drinking and Driving Campaigns
In an effort to curb the incidences of DUI, the El Salvadorian Vice Ministry of Transport has found some success in its "Talking About Alcohol" education programs that inform children and youth about the dangers of drinking and driving in the hopes that they will refrain from doing so when they get older.

Hey, I have forwarded over 32,856 emails to friends and family and luckily just like they said it would at the end, I have avoided bad luck for 7 years.

Phew! Good thing I follow the directions.

I feel sorry for those who don't. Just look at the people who had trees fall on their cars and houses in the last round of storms! I bet they didn't forward the email.

I would actually believe most of the European ones with regards to license suspension and jail time. The "loss of license for life" item in Norway I had already heard 20 years ago, and even heard it in relation to many countries in Europe... that your first one is a 1 year loss of license and your second one is loss for life. I'm not so certain about the fines, given that in Finland your traffic ticket fines are based on your income. However, with Bulgaria being an EU member, they don't have any death penalty.


"They who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- B. Franklin

Every politician should serve two terms... one in office followed immediately by an equal or longer-length one in jail... except in New Jersey where jail time is a pre-requisite to holding office.

Donkeys and Elephants belong in a zoo, not Congress.

Hey Dutch, I've made 4 m/c related post in the last 24 hours.

As for the picture, I would call that a GREAT DAY in the office!

yeah the el salvador one is wrong. I've been pulled over in El salvador and Guatemala while my driver was drunk. The cops there don't make very much. When me and my party where pulled over the cops ID'ed us. They took my driver to the side to talk for a few minutes. Moments later my driver walked over to me and told me the cops wanted the equivalent of 40 us dollars so me and my friends could cab it home no questions asked. Same situation in both countries same amount.
