This is part of the efforts to curb fatalities on road caused by drunk driving.
In the latest operations conducted between September 3rd and 7th in City of Kigali, the traffic and road safety department arrested 48 people, who were either driving or riding while drunk.
A motorist is considered drunk when the blood alcoholic content is above 0.8 millilitres.
"I had taken three bottles of beer; that I cannot deny," said Jean Marie Vianney Nzitonda, one of the arrested taxi-moto operators.
Another arrested driver, Eric Muhawenimana said that he had taken alcohol when he was involved in a road crash on September 6, with a taxi-moto operator.
"When Police officers tested me, the breathalyzer indicated that my drunkenness was at 2 millilitres," said Muhawenimana.
At least 88 motorists have been arrested in Kigali since the beginning of this month for driving while drunk.
RNP Deputy spokesperson, Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Africa Apollo Sendahangarwa said that some motorists do not consider the impact of alcohol on road accidents and related deaths.
"The operations are meant to save lives, either of the drunk motorist or other road users. It is also another method of sending a message on dangers of drunk-driving because these people are also educated on dangers that are likely to result from their reckless practices on road," CSP Africa said.
He urged drivers to put safety first and act responsibly on road adding that operations against impaired driving will continue to ensure safer roads for all.
