10 odd drinking by-laws from around the world

Severe punishment for drink drivers (worldwide)

Continuing with drinking by-laws that aren’t real, there are occasional claims that in both Bulgaria and El Salvador the penalty for drink driving is to be shot by firing squad – at least on the second offence in Bulgaria.

This is not true. Bulgaria no longer has the death penalty and it is only sanctioned in El Salvador for the most exceptional of crimes, although it would be no surprise to discover that during the turbulent years of the ‘70s and ‘80s it was used as an excuse to cover up the numerous extra-judicial killings that took place.

On the other hand, back in the US, if you kill a person or persons while under the influence and are convicted of murder in a state that has the death penalty, then you may very well be executed for drink driving, and in Utah, you can even be shot by firing squad if you choose, so it’s not beyond the realms of possibility.
