Vehicle numbers rise

THE Land Transport Authority has recorded an increase in vehicle population for the last two years.

A recent study conducted by the authority revealed that the vehicle population had increased by 10 per cent and the figures for those securing their driving licences had doubled.

"With so many vehicles and drivers, the authority saw more emphasis had to be placed on effectual awareness and enforcement," LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said.

Mr Tuinaceva said in their bid to address the issue on increasing vehicles and reducing accidents on the road, the authority had taken a proactive stand in organising five phases of enforcement operations throughout the year.

"We believe that there are more areas we need to cover and that is in our action plan for this year," Mr Tuinaceva said.

"We will continue to stress more importance on road safety and review our strategy."
