KIGALI: Seven motorists arrested over drunk-driving

Seven people have been arrested in separate Rwanda National Police (RNP) operations against impaired driving conducted between January 16th and 19th on various roads in City of Kigali.

The motorists were found either driving or riding while drunk. They were found intoxicated beyond the limit of 0.8 blood alcohol content.

The spokesperson for Traffic and Road Safety (TRS) department, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rene Irere said that these are part of the Police operations across different roads of the country to prevent major causes of accidents.

“Driving while drunk is among the identified major causes of accidents and Police always remind motorists to avoid such deliberate traffic violations to save lives. Those who do not want to listen like these, will be arrested. The message is, do not drive when you drink," SSP Irere said.

He advised motorists to change their behaviours and attitudes to be safe and to ensure the safety of other road users.
