DRIVERS are again warned against drinking alcohol while they are behind the wheel.
Police chief Frank Prendergast made the friendly reminder this week in light of increasing alcohol-related road accidents.
Mr Prendergast also urged the public to be responsible when on the roads to avoid unwanted accidents.
“I just want to remind people that we need to be responsible when using our roads,” he said.
“This is a very serious issue, people get into accidents and they get killed so it is important for us road users to do our best so that all of us are safe,” Mr Prendergast said.
It’s understood Mr Prendergast will soon have a meeting with the Director of Traffic Operation to discuss traffic issues in Honiara.
