Drunken-driving posts to expand after holiday

THE Interior Ministry has distributed breath analysers to police in Kandal and Kampong Speu provinces, paving the way for drunken-driving checkpoints to be established there shortly after the Pchum Ben holiday, officials said yesterday. Him Yan, director of the ministry’s Department of Public Order, said seven breath analysers had been sent to Kandal province, and that five had been sent to Kampong Speu. “The traffic police in Kampong Speu and Kandal will start using the drunken-driving checkpoints after the Pchum Ben festival,” he said. Municipal traffic police established checkpoints in all eight districts of the capital beginning last Friday. Chev Hak, deputy chief of the municipal traffic police, said yesterday that police had collected 180,000 riels (about US$43) in fines. He added, though, that the checkpoints would not be operational for three days during the Pchum Ben festival.
