LTA should also consider the safety and welfare of PSV drivers rather than focusing on passenger complaints.
This, according to Fiji Taxi Association Lautoka Branch secretary Mohammed Shameem in response to comments made by authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva.
Mr Tuinaceva earlier said the new law was to fix drivers who had a bad attitude towards members of the public, their passengers and also against non-PSV drivers.
He had said educational background of PSV drivers would be reviewed to ensure they had some formal education.
"We have so many complaints from the public about bad taxidrivers. They are rude and they don't know how to provide service. We get more than 20 complaints per week," Mr Tuinaceva earlier said.
In response, Mr Shameem said the LTA should also consider the safety of drivers.
"Given the knowledge and education under the drivers code of conduct, so far there has been no passengers code of conduct," he said.
"We had complaints of drivers who are beaten by passengers while some passengers don't pay fares."
Mr Shameem said Fiji had a large number of PSV drivers and the bad attitude of a few should not affect the rest.
"The association has many other problems such as getting the taxi to a standard."
He added the association also supported LTA's plan to educate new PSV drivers.
"It's a good thing for upcoming drivers to be educated to get the taxi to a good standard."
