Crackdown On Drunken Driving Intensifies

The Zimbabwe Republic Police  Traffic Department has intensified its crackdown on drunken driving as part of the department’s bid to rid the country’s roads of errant drivers. Home Affairs minister Cain Mathema yesterday said the force needs more equipment such as breathalyzers to deal with drunken drivers.

The newly-appointed Home Affairs minister added that he had been apprised on the on-going operation which is aimed at weeding out unregistered vehicles, some of which have been involved in road traffic accidents, robberies, and various crimes, from the country’s roads.

Said Mathema:

It is my fervent hope and conviction that we all need to work towards a shift in attitude by all motorists and road users in order to safeguard lives on the roads. In equal measure, the Zimbabwe Republic Police needs to be equipped with the right attitudes, skills, and tools of trade such as breathalyzer machines, speed traps, cameras for effective traffic enforcement.I have since directed the police to intensify deployment of police officers to conduct awareness campaigns and enforce the law in order to restore sanity on the roads. I urge fellow Zimbabweans to be responsible citizens and contribute towards the maintenance of law and order in our country
