Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has banned the sale of alcoholic drinks at the various motor parks in the state.

Senator Uzodinma stated this during the inauguration of the advisory council on road safety in Owerri.

According to him, the aim is to reduce the number of road crashes by fifty percent by twenty-thirty which will also meet the global best practices.

He said the state government has done a lot to ensure that the roads in the state are relatively in good shape and hitch-free driving for motorists.

The state Governor said the resolve to curb the frequent accidents on the major highways led to the engagement of world-class contractors to dualize Owerri- Orlu road and Owerri-Okigwe road to boost the economy of the state.
