We met with police at the Badili roadblock.
Police continued with their traffic checks and other alcohol-related incidents.
We caught up with motorist, Mikes Wanagi, who said police were doing a tremendous job at the road blocks, helping to stop nuisance to from intoxicated people.
” It’s a time to be responsible when consuming alcohol- the police are doing a fine job keeping the roads safe,” Wanagi tells us.

A drive to downtown Port Moresby, two other security personnel, were also busy manning their spots.
