Using this year’s campaign theme, “Crash the Crash: Speed kills,” Omeje in his speech noted that driving under the influence was an underlying factor in some of the road traffic crashes recorded.
The Corps commander expressed gratitude to Guinness Nigeria for the donation of breathalyzers giving to the corps last year, which he said has been used extensively to carry out sobriety tests on motorists in various motor parks and major roadways around the state.
