248 Teachers in Gwangju/Jeonnam were caught dunk driving for the last five years

광주전남 5년간 교사 248명 음주운전 적발… 전남서울보다 많아


According to a report submitted by the Ministry of Education, 248 school teachers in Gwangju and Jeonnam were caught for DUI(driving under the influence of alcohol) in the last five years. To be more specific, 74 and 174 teachers in Gwangju/Jeonnam respectively.


The total number of school teachers in Gwangju/Jeonnam is less than a third of school teachers in Seoul. But there were almost 70 more teachers who committed DUIs here. The gap is quite big. But the good news is that the number of those caught has been decreasing each year. The number has decreased from 30 in 2015 to 77, 32, 27 and 8 for the following years in Jeonnam. And in Gwangju, there were 31 in 2016, 20, 10 and 2 until the first half of this year.  


Senator 조승래 said regarding this issue,  a tougher penalty for drunk drivers is needed to reduce the number of cases. Under the current penalty laws, 80% of the teachers only got light punishments such as pay cuts or a mild reprimand.
