BEIRUT: Police will tighten security measures on New Year’s Eve and cautioned against driving recklessly or while under the influence of alcohol. 

In a statement, the ISF said that “instructions have been made to all the units and traffic police to intensify and double their deployment on the main roads and intersections to facilitate the traffic movement.” 

Lebanon’s Internal Security Forces noted that it would take the tightest measures at the entrances to restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls and other facilities where large turnouts are expected. 

The ISF asked motorists to abide by the legal speed limits and not to use their mobile phones while they are behind the wheel or drive under the influence of alcohol. 

Police also urged motorists to use their seatbelts for their own safety and for the sake of other motorists and pedestrians. 

The ISF will erect random checkpoints to stop drivers for speeding and to perform alcohol tests. People are asked to call 112 to report any emergencies.
