A JOINT road operation by police and the Land Transport Authority is subject to review.
LTA said the month-long third phase Red Zone operation from Sigatoka to Ba, which began three days ago, would be reviewed at the end of next month.
In a statement, the LTA said it had issued 145 traffic infringement notices in the past few days, 197 defect orders to defective vehicles and impounded six vehicles as a result of expired registrations and other defects.
The Sigatoka to Ba corridor is prone to accidents with certain locations identified as black spots.
"At the moment, the team is on a high energy of applying a fully operational order to curb the Sigatoka to Ba corridor noticing the increasing number of offenders along the roads," the statement said.
"Most of these drivers are so compelled to drive without due care and attention that may cause accidents. It is sad to note that there are drivers that continue not to adhere to the messages and warnings that are issued almost every day and also ignore the importance of it.
"It is a disaster on our roads when drivers tend to play immune to what is said to them in a manner of advocating road safety," the LTA said.
"These black spots have a tendency of causing high risk and danger to the travelling public and also pedestrians alike.
"Most of these areas need strategic operation plans to ensure there are effective and affirmative actions done to reduce accidents and fatalities."
The increasing trend of fatalities of 33 compared to 32 for the same period last year has raised concern as to what can effectively be done to combat these concerned issues.
"Our target offences are focused on speeding, careless driving, drink and drive, dangerous driving, improper use of mobiles or two way communications and failure to wear seat belts to name a few," said the LTA statement.
