The road police will add control measures over the last days of the year.

Director of the Road Police, Erion Ahmeti stressed that the focus of the controls will be the drivers who consume alcohol and then get behind the wheel.

"The road police will be present on the road axes throughout the nights. Those drivers caught under the influence of alcohol will not be treated with tolerance." said Ahmeti.

Wishing all Albanians a Happy New Year, Ahmeti encouraged citizens to use public transports as their means of movement.

"Please, consume alcohol if you desire, but do not drive a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Use the extended public transport service available to go to and from your destinations." said Erion Ahmeti.

The public bus system in Tirana will be running on extended hours to assist all citizens of the capital in enjoying their festivities safely across the city.
