Impaired Driving: Man in China Sentenced to Death – A Chinese man was sentenced to death this week after an impaired driving accident that killed four people.

Although Ontario and Canada have strict laws against impaired driving and driving “over 80”, they could be much stricter.

An unlicensed impaired driver who killed four people in Sichuan province was handed a death sentence on July 24, 2009.  Sun Weiming, a 30-year-old company executive in Chengdu, Sichuan province, was found guilty of endangering public safety and sentenced to death by the Chengdu Intermediate People’s Court.  It is believed that he is the first drunk driver to be charged with “endangering public safety” and sentenced to death in China.  News reports claim that he drove his Buick into four oncoming sedans.  Tests after the accident showed he had 135.8 milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood.  The legal limit was 80 milligrams.
