THE Land Transport Authority's enforcement unit has issued more than 51,000 traffic infringement notices so far this year.
The third quarter alone featured a record of more than 15,000 notices.
Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said the high number of notices issued was the result of their strict zero tolerance policy on compliance and standard.
"To date, we have issued 51,930 notices. The authority is taking a vigilant approach on motorists who fail to meet the maximum standard requirement, especially the Public Service Vehicle (PSV) licence drivers," Mr Tuinacava said.
"We want to ensure that all PSV modes are in perfect condition because these vehicles are licensed vehicles tasked to carry passengers and they must meet the highest or the standard and compliancy requirement which is regulated by the authority at all times."
He said taxis, buses, mini vans and the entire PSV classification certified to transport members of the public was their main target: "We do not want lives to be compromised and that's why we keep our standard as high as possible."
Mr Tuinaceva added that the unit had been advised to intensify its processes, especially during this time of the year where much movement was anticipated.
"The last five years show that more road fatality happens towards the second half of the year due to the festive season as more people engage in a lot of movement using the roads.
"The possibilities of road fatalities are expected and the unit should intensify its programs to monitor these sorts of mishaps."
And the launch of the authority's Facebook page has supplemented the work of the unit.
Last year they issued over 70,000 notices.
