ROAD rage is slowly creeping on Fiji roads.
And such drivers are beginning to discard road rules and vent their frustration on other motorists and pedestrians by verbally abusing and tooting their horns.
Land Transport Authority chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said accidents usually occurred when drivers were speeding on the roads because of their accustomed behaviour.
"When they are to slow down, they tend to have a frustrated attitude developing that into a frenzy," Mr Tuinaceva said.
He said this happened because of the bumper to bumper driving where it posed a high risk.
"It shows that these drivers don't respect the law and tend to create an atmosphere of impatient attitude while driving," he added.
Mr Tuinaceva said they discussed these with the traffic police to strengthen enforcement.
He said this syndrome was developing and more emphasis should be placed on combined enforcement operations.
"Drivers need to practise road courtesy. These cases occur because drivers are so eager to reach a destination not realising the danger they pose while doing that. Time management is what they should do to avoid that."
