NO one is above the law and road rules should be adhered to at all times, says Land Transport Authority spokesman Alfred Wiliame.

His comment follows concerns raised by a group of motorists in Labasa that a group of vehicle owners continue to park at a street in town even under the 'No Parking' road sign.

Mr Wiliame said road signs should be followed as it is put up in town areas and around the country for the safety of the public and road users.

"No one is spared from the law and road signs should be followed," he said.

"The members of the public can lodge a complaint with the LTA office in Labasa.

"LTA will penalise all those who do not adhere to road rules," Mr Wiliame said.

This newspaper has observed how vehicle owners park their cars along Nanuku St even under the 'No Parking' road sign.

The Fiji Times office in Labasa has also received complaints over how vehicle owners have ignored the road signs and parked in No Parking areas.

Mr Wiliame said road signs were put up for a purpose and motorists should abide by it.

He said the Labasa Town Council also had enforcing officers who had been tasked to see that road signs were adhered to.
