    Police have imposed alcoblow on the Nairobi Expressway

    Published on

    With the goal of reducing drunk driving and increasing the security of the Nairobi Expressway, the National Police Service has implemented the notorious alcoblow.

    Although the 27-kilometer road has greatly reduced traffic along the bustling Mombasa Road, there have been a number of accidents, some of which have resulted in fatalities.

    To ensure drivers’ sobriety, the highway police have begun administering the Alcoblow test and increasing their presence.

    The police have said that any who are caught driving under the influence would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Since the government has prohibited public service vehicles from operating on the highway, the alcoblow test will only affect drivers of privately owned automobiles.

    Any motorist caught driving while intoxicated on an expressway faces a maximum penalty of Sh100,000 and/or two years in prison.
