ABOUT 67 per cent of traffic infringements occur in the Western Division.
Police traffic director Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Mahesh Mishra revealed the statistic at a certificate presentation for breathalyser test training in Lautoka this week.
SSP Mishra said these figures needed to change and he reminded people to be vigilant and practise road safety.
"This is the reason we have been training our officers so that they too have sound knowledge and possess the skills to serve the public," he said.
SSP Mishra said parental negligence was a reason children were becoming victims.
"I urge parents to be more aware when it comes to their children's safety," he said, adding that more training programs for officers will be conducted in the coming months. We will direct our efforts to the West during the remainder of the year, especially since the festive season is approaching.
"National traffic operations will be conducted.
"Our main concern is reducing the number of fatalities on the roads."
Special administrator for Lautoka, Ba and Tavua, Praveen Bala said he was shocked by the large number of infringements in the West.
"We will have to work together as a community if we are to reduce the number of fatalities on our roads," he said.
