Drunken driving has been a menace in Kenyan roads and has claimed the lives of many people.
The government has established ways to curb the menace by introducing Alco-blow which identifies the drunk drivers through blowing into a gadget that measures the percentage of alcohol in the body thereafter charged depending on the circumstances.
The police have called on all road users to be vigilant on the roads and obey traffic rules by avoiding drinking and driving.
