In Togo, police forces will start conducting random alcohol testing on roads from Monday

(Togo First) - Starting next Monday, alcohol testing on Togolese roads will be effective. 

The news came from the ministry of security and civilian protection, yesterday - as it was presenting a safety review covering H2 2019.

The tests, which will be random, will be carried out by police forces. By launching this initiative now, authorities want to limit accidents involving drunk drivers, which are quite frequent at this time of the year.

"We are not forbidding drinking alcohol, but drivers should not exceed the set threshold," said Yark Damehone, minister of safety and civilian protection. And the threshold is 0.5g.
