    Inspector-General of Police Hillary Mutyambai on Thursday, December 19, issued a stern warning to road users who would be travelling during the festive season.

    He cautioned motorists against drunk driving as well as overspeeding and asked those intending to travel to various parts of the country to make security arrangements before embarking on their journeys, advising them not to leave their homes unattended.

    Further, he cautioned passengers against entering vehicles that were already full to capacity in both private cars and PSVs.

    "I would like to warn passengers against being in excess both in private or PSV vehicles effective today. We will deal with the excess passengers in our roadblocks.

    "It does not matter from which point, the vehicle will continue with its destination as the passenger remains behind," he warned.
