FOURTEEN driving licences were suspended by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on Thursday following the show cause meeting at Valelevu.
The show cause is a process that encompasses proceedings leading to suspensions of either driving licences or vehicle registration certificates.
A statement from LTA said out of the 14 cases that were filed for appearance, only four appeared and the remaining 10 did not show any consent to their non-appearance.
LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said from the 14 suspended licences, 11 were Public Service Vehicle drivers while three were private licence holders.
He said the highest number of traffic infringement from one of the offenders was 95 who was handed a suspension of two years.
Mr Tuinaceva said most of the offenders were between the age of 25 and 58 years, with suspensions in between a period of three months as the minimum and two years as the maximum.
"Having such appearance is to remind drivers and owners of vehicles that the law does not rest and is alive 24 hours a day.
"Most of the offences created are speeding as the most common and the highest offence, careless driving and dangerous driving to name a few.
"It is also surprising to note that drivers even at the young age of 21 years and as old as 58 years are in this category of offenders and it is really a concern to the authority," said Mr Tuinaceva.
Pursuant to the Land Transport (Driver) Regulations 2000 and the Land Transport (Vehicle Registration and Construction) Regulation 2000 the chief executive is vested with the powers under his responsibility functions to execute these laws without further indictment.
All drivers or owners are issued with a notice of appearance on a particular date to make presentations as to why their driving licences or vehicle registration should not be suspended or revoked by the chief executive, an LTA statement said.
Police have on some of the cases sought LTA assistance.
Mr Tuinaceva said LTA was asked by the traffic police to quickly act upon these offenders' driving licence while they continued with their own necessary investigation on 11 of them.
"We have been asked by police to assist them in ruling out these common habitual offenders that continue to disrespect the laws relating to traffic.
"The LTA legislation has provisions to resolve issues on a shorter time frame unlike the police procedure which may take some time.
"We have been working in partnership and I see no reason of not acting upon it as an immediate remedy," said Mr Tuinaceva.
All offenders were given 14 days to make an appeal to the board.
