Representatives have approved a proposal to allow boat passengers to consume alcohol while driving, and the Senate will debate the amendment. Why is it supposed to represent a victory for common sense, according to some members of the House Economic Committee that introduced it? Is your alcohol tolerance in the Czech Republic too high? And what exactly would change for boaters with a change in the law? Vladimir Kroc asked MP Wojciech Munzar (ODS) about Radiožurnál.

With a high probability, in the next boating season, as a warrior of a small non-motorized ship, you will be able to get two glasses of wine or two glasses of 10 grade beer at select tables with impunity. nAnd Facebook called it a small victory for common sense. What you mean?
Exactly as you wrote it. It’s a small victory, because of course we have much more important problems in our country today.

I consider alcohol to be part of our culture. All things in moderation also apply to strict laws, says Representative Wojciech Munzar

However, life consists not only of the most important things, but also of the smaller things, and the fact that absolute intolerance has been broken at least by a vote of the House of Representatives is one of the steps.

This result is a compromise that has been created for a long time, containing terms for limiting land. The proposal was not drawn up this year, but we took it from the last election period, when the House debated it for two years and when it expired just before it was approved.

The Senate debated it, added cyclists to it, and then the House found no majority for this extension, finding 101 votes to bypass the Senate and return to the original House version.


The House of Representatives endorsed a tolerance of half a million alcohol for boaters. Still to be approved by the Senate and the President

Since I was a decision-maker for this proposal in the last election period and was involved in negotiating this compromise, I felt it was an internal debt to us to continue with it.

My colleagues and I who presented this year took advantage of the fact that the Inland Navigation Act was being debated for reasons other than tolerance.

She writes on Twitter: “DayAlmost everyone drinks beer over water and this is completely normal. The current intolerance under the threat of fines is a denial of reality. “But the Zero Tolerance Act is still in effect. Isn’t it wrong to publicly question him as a legislator?
I think it is not a mistake. My colleagues and I have made an amendment to put some common sense into our laws. Our suggestion is actually to protect respectable people who have at most one or two beers with lunch.

decent law

Who do you mean when you say decent people? How do you differentiate between polite and rude people on the water?
Anyone who has been on the water can note people who do not even respect a zero tolerance, but at the same time excessively drink alcohol.

Our proposal is not aimed at them, because these people will violate the tolerance of half a million. Our suggestion won’t change this, but we want to protect people who have a beer or two with lunch from being fined for doing so.

Don’t you have the impression that social tolerance towards alcohol is generally high in our country?
I think alcohol is part of our Western culture, as long as it’s not overused, sometimes a glass of wine with a moderate meal is fine.

It must be said that everything is in moderation, both with alcohol and with the formulation and strictness of laws.

Addiction scientist Michal Miewski reminds us that we are among the first in the world to consume alcohol per capita, while alcohol is widely known to be a carcinogen and cause major health and social problems. Wouldn’t it be more responsible to take the path of education in the sense that drinking a lot of alcohol is not healthy? And redundancy here is possible, as you will probably realize.
I agree with that. We must follow the path of education and draw attention to the dangers In cases where a person excessively consumes alcohol, the consequences can be very serious for a person.

But education can be provided not only by the state, it must also be provided, for example, by non-profit organizations and the like.

It also stems from family situations, and the high level of alcohol consumption in the family is also not a good example for children. However, it is okay to have a small amount of alcohol during a social event or leisure activity.

Why was the law amended by introducing a one-year deferment to the deadline to replace already expired licenses for captains of small ships? What else does the modification bring? Listen to the full interview.
