Report illegal operators

PEOPLE renting private vehicles for transportation purposes are encouraging corruption, bad business and would also be disadvantaged should accidents occur.

This is the message from Land Transport Authority chief executive Naisa Tuinaceva who is urging the public to report unscrupulous and illegal operators renting private vehicles.

"We are aware that this is happening but people need to come and formally register their complaints with us," he said.

"We are working hard to cut down this network and are working with legitimate rental companies in our quest to clean up the rental vehicle industry."

Meanwhile, a rental car company in the capital city is taking a proactive approach by furnishing the authority with illegal operators' vehicle numbers.

Suva Car Rentals managing director Mohammed Sareem called on the LTA, Fiji Revenue and Customs Authority and the police to continue their crackdown on illegal operators.

"I have had a few meetings with LTA and they have asked us to provide them with the registration numbers of these vehicles," he said.
