Alcohol to require warning labels

The government is set to order that alcoholic beverage producers put warning labels on containers in a bid to promote safe driving habits, said Him Yan, director of the Ministry of Interior’s Department of Public Order. Him Yan said the goal of the initiative, to be launched next year, is to educate people on the hazards of drunken driving through warning labels on containers. Sem Chenda, the Road Safety Programme assistant at Handicap International Belgium, welcomed the government’s efforts, noting that drunken driving is the second-leading cause of road fatalities, after speeding.
