What fitting punishment should be given to people who drive after having alcohol more than the prescribed limits?

The arrested person can get back on the road the next day as it is a bailable offence. The punishment should be be non-bailable so that they never do it again.

Fine and imprisonment are not enough. The license should be confiscated permanently and the offender should be made to do community service.
— Nidhi Babbar, 25, Financial Consultant

The traffic police should be more vigilant as this will help to keep the drunk drivers under check. If they are youngsters, their parents should be called and informed.
Vishal Chaudhary, 23, Student

These people need to realise that drinking and driving not only puts theirs, but someone else’s life at risk, too. There should be a big fine and a long jail sentence for such people.
— Rubeen Bawa, 21, Student

These drunk drivers should be subjected to a ‘public pitai'’ (beating or humiliating in public). That will help in curbing such activities
