Not that it justifies this drunken fool, but it does sound like the guy was working out on the street as one often sees in Thailand, a dangerous place to be.

Nahh,, not safe.. my wife is there...

Weren't you the guy so against canabis worried about stoned people driving. I think alcohol is a far bigger problem with driving.  But i guess that is not a drug you like to condemn.

It would be good to know what happens to these drunken idiots after they kill or injure people, but there is never any follow-up. Based on the fact that he knew he was drunk and was a danger to others I imagine a minimum of 10 years might be a reasonable sentence.

this insurance is 15k per year. They don't have shorter

They should drop COE and lower insurance to a realistic max $10k, premium would drop drastically. 

Still, sandbox is much cheaper, with hotels from 8k for 2 weeks. Possibly sandbox will be also shortened.

There is also a rumour, that from 1st november no quarantine in 8 provinces, including bkk
