Drunk drivers in China could face harsher punishments in the future, including the revocation of their driving licenses, according to a draft amendment to the Road Traffic Safety Law to be discussed by the national legislature.

Drunk drivers would not be able to recover their licenses until five years after revocation, according to the amendment.

Current law stipulates a license suspension of three to six months for drunk drivers.

The Standing Committee of the National People's Congress opened its bimonthly session in Beijing on Wednesday, where it will be reading over a series of drafts, law amendments and reports.
