Don't drink and drive in Hungary

Statistics in Hungary show that 13-14% of driving accidents that cause fatalities or serious injuries are caused by drunken drivers. Not only is the plan to now strengthen the drunk driving laws but also allow fines to be collected from foreign drivers.

In addition, it looks like the maximum allowable blood alcohol level of .08% is going to be reduced to .05% and that fines will be given based on, not blood tests, but on breathalizer tests.
