DySP Jivba Dalvi has urged the clubs, pubs, and restaurants located in the Anjuna and Siolim areas to ask drunk patrons to avoid driving cars.
Dalvi focussed stressed on need to promote the use of taxis and prioritise safety of their customers.
Dalvi also stressed on importance of reporting any accidents involving tourists who, while enjoying Goa’s scenic beauty and beaches, might lose control due to alcohol consumption.
