BEIJING - Drunken driving and street racing are stipulated as crimes in a draft amendment to China's Criminal Law, as part of the country's efforts to make its roads safer.

The move was proposed on Monday in a draft amendment, which was under the first reading by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), China's top legislature.

Convicted drunken drivers may face forced labor while in detention for one to six months and be fined, even if their actions cause no accident, according to the draft law.
