Vigilance house, since last week, suspended the use of Alcohol Blow machine by traffic officers around the country.
According to an inside source, an anonymous impromptu checkup on the roadblock points discovered that the machines did not serve the intended purpose.
An internal Memo seen by Ureport directed that all the Alcohol Blow gadgets be handed back to relevant authorities for safekeeping by Monday, November 25, 2019.
“Good Morning SCPSs. Please note that even as we await written instructions, From Today, going forward there will be no(R) no alcohol blow checks in the county until further notice.”
“This being the case all the Alcohol Blow gadgets will be handed over in writing to OC traffic on Monday 18/11/19 on or before 1000 hours without fail,” read the internal memo from Vigilance House.”
Last week, motorists noticed the absence of the alcohol blow from the roads and were quick to update the development on their social media accounts causing varied reactions.
The return date of the Alcohol Blow machine is yet to be communicated.
At some point, former Police Boss Joseph Boinnet suggested the use of the machines during the day to reduce road accidents.
