Many citizens have reacted to the proposal of the Motor Vehicle Bill which can result in a $5,000 fine and six
months in jail for drivers caught with alcohol in their hands.
Some lament the fact that they can no longer enjoy one alcoholic beverage when they are operating a motor
vehicle, describing the penalty as a bit extreme.
However, President of Arrive Alive Sharon Inglefield feels that the Proposal can help to save lives on the nation’s roads.
She spoken with News Power Now this morning and she commended the Government on the new Bill.
Inglefield revealed that she believed this would have a positive effect on curbing the number of road deaths due
to drunk driving.
She expressed confidence that the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service would do its part on the nation’s roads if
the Bill is passed.
