 NEW APPROACH TO TAME DRUNK DRIVING (2018-12-14).

The Police will now start using breath alcohol testers randomly at different times of the day in a bid to curb drunk driving during this Christmas festivities and beyond.

The Inspector General, National Police Service Mr Joseph Boinnet says, previously, the police have been carrying out alcohol blow tests during the night only but have now changed the tact to carry out the tests at different times of the day to curb road carnage.

Mr. Boinnet was speaking today at his Jogoo House boardroom where 25 Police officers from across the services and the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, each, received Chandaria Foundation Bravery Award from the Kenyan Industrialist Dr. Manu Chandaria.

The Inspector General says, drivers of public transport vehicles, private cars and boda boda operators should act responsibly all the time while on the road and ensure that they do not engage in drinking sprees the night before they drive or ride.

He appealed to all road users to obey traffic laws and cautioned pedestrians against crossing busy roads without observing traffic regulations.

Mr. Boinnet assures all Kenyans that stringent security measures have already been put in place to enable wananchi enjoy Christmas festivities in a peaceful and tranquil environment.

He commended all Police officers for keeping the country safe and secure despite security challenges that arose in the course of their duty.

The Inspector General thanked Dr. Chandaria for consistently giving the Bravery awards for the last 20 years now. Dr Chandaria says, he respects the work of the police in creating a peaceful environment national development.
