THE Land Transport Authority's five-day speed walk campaign on road safety awareness has impacted more than 102,000 people.
This was revealed by LTA road safety general manager Timoci Satakala.
He said the speed walk campaign had come about as a result of the worrying figures of road accidents.
"Every single year on Fiji roads an average of 50 to 70 families will lose a family member through road accidents.
"And 100 more families will have one member seriously injured and hospitalised while about 200 more families will have at least one member treated but not hospitalised," Mr Satakala said.
"Road safety education and publicity continue to be a major focus area of the Land Transport Authority Community Awareness and Intervention Programs 2012."
As part of the speed walk campaign, a squad of 20 trained people took part in school visitations, home visitations, community awareness, marches and also manned snapshot advisory checkpoints.
Targets reached by the campaign included informing students in 77 high risk schools about road safety and issued road safety stickers to 5567 vehicles.
The campaign also gave road safety information to 4215 homes and over 30,000 people.
