CCTV News reported that a certain province (name forgotten) has passed a law holding passengers in a drunk driver's car jointly responsible for drunk driving!  What a brilliant piece of legislation!  Imagine this scenerio; a traffic poliiceman pulls over a driver on the highway, breath-test him and finds him over the limit, the officer then tickets all the passengers on the spot!  It forces passengers to self-police and prevent any drunken friend from getting behind the wheel!  That would most certainly reduce the number of drunk driving cases, which have mounted this festive season, and also bring down the number of deaths and injuries resulting from drunlk driving!
Passengers always know if the driver has consumed alcohol; now the law holds them responsible if they failed to stop him driving!  What a powerful deterrent against drunk driving, and all because passengers are held legally liable with the driver!
This is a very smart piece of legislation, and should be implemented in all provinces throughout China!  This is probably the first law of its kind in the whole world!  The traffic police should be given a medal for such an ingenius idea!  Who says the Chinese are not innovative?

re: What if a bus driver holds a busload of passengers captive for ransom/ if he kidnaps them to extort some money from someone and is found by the police to be slightly tipsy, his passengers will pay no matter that they are the driver's victims.

At times I wonder if all them screws in your upper department are still tight enough...

You have great imagination!   The law, as I understand, is limited to car passengers, not bus passengers!
