The eThekwini Municipality and South African Breweries (SAB) are working together to curb road fatalities in Durban.

The parties have entered into a memorandum of agreement to establish an alcohol evidence centre (AEC) in Durban. The report on the alcohol evidence centre received unanimous endorsement from councillors when presented to eThekwini’s finance, security and emergency services committee last week.

According to council documents, all costs of establishing the centre, equipment and training of staff, will be incurred by SAB.
