The agency also plans to set up sobriety checkpoints with the help of local traffic cops and regular officers.
In addition, police officers will be checking for any suspected impaired driving right after corporate lunch hours in order to prevent workers from drinking and driving.
The latest measure comes after a rise in the number of fatalities and injuries due to drunk driving between January and June this year. During the period, three people died and 593 were injured from 312 cases.
Among the 2,529 cases of violation during the first half of this year, 1,139 or nearly half of those drivers were repeat offenders.
