Alcohol can be an enjoyable activity for some people. However, what many people fail to realize is how quickly it can affect your daily life and functionality.

Speaking of which, it seems like the police in Lahore is definitely catching up with global practices. Just recently, Lahore City Traffic announced that they’ve started using breathalyzers to test drunk drivers on the spot on the city’s major roads.

What is a breathalyzer?

A breathalyzer is a device that measures blood alcohol content (BAC). The more intoxicated a person is the higher their BAC.

Here’s the announcement tweet:

Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Lahore, Dr. Assad Malhin, stated:

“The police will conduct the test on the spot through a digital alcohol tester. If caught, legal proceedings against the driver will be initiated under Motor Vehicle Ordinance. The culprit could face up to 6 months of jail time along with the fine.”

This initiative is indeed commendable as it will prevent road accidents from happening. Other cities in Pakistan should also take notice to ensure smooth traffic and also take care of pedestrians that are commonly seen on the raods in Paksiatn.

Nothing is worth risking your life or the lives of others.
