AUKI

THE Ministry of Police, National Security and Correction Service through RSIPF has been urged to introduce breathalysers in Auki.

The call follows an increase in drink driving in Auki, which concerned members of public say needs to be addressed immediately before any casualty takes place.

A Mr John Kaia said drivers especially those engaged in passenger runs in and out of Auki town are risking the lives of their passengers when they drink and drive.

Kaia added, “Passengers sometimes raise complaint on the matter, but it continues that goes beyond what we can do.”

Kaia believes that introducing the breathalyser can help curb the problem.

Kaia said the travelling public in Malaita province deserve quality and reliable road transport service that is free from endangering their lives.
