THE Land Transport Authority renewed its commitment to its partnership with the police on Wednesday by providing the force with two new vehicles.
LTA CEO Naisa Tuinaceva and Acting Police Commissioner Ravi Narayan officiated at the handing-over ceremony of the vehicles which had a combined value of about $100,000.
"This is a commitment which the LTA made last year to the then commissioner Brigadier General Ioane Naivalurua," Mr Tuinaceva said.
"And even though he may not be with us now, we have remained true to our commitment and today we will be handing over two vehicles to the acting commissioner."
Mr Tuinaceva explained the LTA and the police were partners in a number of similar initiatives aimed at lowering the national road death toll.
These include the Arrive Alive campaign, reflector bands for children and the launch of the Decade of Road Safety program.
"All in all, this was what gave us the ability to reduce the road fatality rate on Fiji roads to 41, the lowest ever recorded in Fiji's history.
"The vehicles will assist the police to be well equipped and help them to effectively police red spots which are accident-prone."
