POLICE are reiterating the need for drivers to take precautionary measures when using the road in order to prevent accidents.
The statement was made by police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri following a car accident which claimed the lives of two people and landed four people in hospital last Friday.
"We are again appealing to motorists to take extra caution while driving because the passengers' safety is in their hands," he said.
"Our team of officers are still investigating the matter and we hope to determine the cause of accident sometime soon.
"Three of the victims are still recovering at the Labasa Hospital while one remains at the Taveuni Hospital," he said.
Insp Sokomuri has also urged passengers to always remind speeding drivers to drive within the national speed limit.
"If you are travelling in an overspeeding vehicle, you have the right to ask the driver to slow down for your own safety.
"Passengers should also be on the look-out when travelling long distances because accidents are bound to happen," he said.
It was earlier reported the men were travelling from Matei towards Somosomo when the accident happened at 10pm last Friday.
Funeral arrangements for the two deceased are being finalised by their families. Twenty people have died on the road this year.
