The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun Sector Command has revealed that it will deploy breathalysers ahead of the forthcoming Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
The breathalysers are to test motorists in order to detect those who drive under the influence of alcohol during the festivities period.
The Ogun Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr. Ahmed Umar, made this known in an interview with newsmen on Tuesday.
He said that the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) would be engaged for this purpose during the festival.
“We are therefore appealing to motorists to avoid drink driving during and after the festive period.
“People should not indulge in drinking and driving at the same time to prevent unnecessary loss of life,” he said.
Umar added that any vehicle impounded as a result of violation of traffic rules and regulations would not be released until after the Sallah festival.
