Drivers Cautioned Against Using Energy Drinks To Fight Fatigue
By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
The traffic police have warned drivers against using energy drinks to fight fatigue.
ASP Faridah Nampiima, the traffic police spokesperson, says they have noticed an increase in false belief that energy drinks help drivers to deal with fatigue on roads.
Nampiima adds that some crashes are happening on roads because drivers who feel tired do not take the required rest, but choose to buy energy drinks in the false belief that they would help them to stay awake.
In March this year, the National Drug Authority informed the parliamentary committee on trade, industries and tourism that some energy drinks on the market contained alcoholic- content.
