“I will like to warn the drivers to desist from drinking and driving especially during these ember months and they should be very careful on the roads. We have always cautioned them that if they must drink, they should not drive and if they must drive, they should not drink.

“Passengers should also watch out for the behaviours of drivers whenever they are travelling. If they observe that the driver is drunk or is about to take anything alcohol, they should report him to the nearest security agencies.”
