The Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) in bid to make Nigerian roads safe for road users has procured an equipment which could detect liquor on a drunk driver.
Mr Ikechukwu Igwe, the Bayelsa state FRSC Sector Commander, said the act is in bid to make raid safer for road users during the Yuletide season.
He also cautioned road users against overloading and encouraged drivers to install speed limit device.
“We have gotten the machine that we will be used to detect drunk drivers in order to safeguard lives and property of road users. When we arrest you, you will be prosecuted according to the law; so, avoid driving under the influence of alcohol.
Speed limit and over-loading violation are some of the major causes of fatal accidents on the highways,” he said.
