LTA beefs up operation

Maciu Malo
Friday, November 30, 2012

THE Land Transport Authority will strengthen its road operations in the West as the festive season approaches.

The division has recorded the largest number of suspended drivers' licences this year.

LTA media officer Alfred Wiliame said a joint operation has been planned for the west.

Of the total 247 driving licences suspended Fiji -wide, 117 were recorded in the west.

"We have plans for the West during the festive season and we are waiting for our road operation partners to decide on the actual time to start with the operation," Mr Wiliame said.

"Records show that most accidents occur during the festive season and this is the reason we want to have frequent road operations at this time.

"The main objective is to reduce road fatality rates and educate drivers to follow the simple and basic road rules. People in the West are urged to be careful and to always monitor the movement of their children."

LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said the authority would not condone habitual behaviour of misconduct and frequent disobedience of the law.

"As the festival season comes closer, we urge motorists to take heed of the road rules," he said.
