PUTRAJAYA, Mar 17 (MySinchew) -- Transport minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai said the government had already suspended the driving license of 19-year-old Ng Pei Ven, who caused the death of one motorist and injured five others while driving on the wrong way of North-South Expressway on Tuesday.

Liow said it was a very serious traffic offense to drive under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

He said the authorities had taken steps to create a safer driving environment for the public, and would educate motorists on the responsibility to ensure road safety.

He also said the Road Safety Council had in last week's meeting decided on 22 measures to ensure road safety, adding that the authorities would step up reinforcement.
