SPEEDING continues to top the list of bookings in Operation Thunderbolt with 484 drivers booked for the traffic offence.
Fiji Police Force spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said this was a worrying trend.
She said the three-week operation called Operation Thunderbolt in the north was part of their focus on reducing road fatalities.
"Speeding continues to top the list of bookings during Operation Thunderbolt as the Fiji Police Force tries its best to reduce the number of fatalities and accidents on our roads," she said.
"The nationwide campaign by the Fiji Police Force sees similar operations undertaken in the west, east and Southern Division.
"The Northern Division operation has so far seen 484 drivers booked for speeding, 18 booked for non-compliance of seat belt regulations and 174 drivers booked for other offences."
Ms Naisoro said the operation was also an initiative where traffic officers had also been creating awareness on road safety.
"All bookings will now be forwarded to the Land Transport Authority (LTA). The focus of the Fiji Police Force operation is to help LTA identify habitual offenders who have more than 10 traffic infringement notices, as this clearly demonstrates a complete disregard of road rules and the safety of other road users."
Ms Naisoro said a decision would be left entirely to the LTA on whether habitual drivers would be taken off the roads. "Operation Thunderbolt has so far covered the entire Northern Division and is expected to conclude by the end of the month," she said.
