POLICE are asking the people of Fiji to do away with the time honoured tradition of throwing water at moving vehicles during new year celebrations.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the practice would pose a real threat to the safety of motorists.

"This tends to be the usual practice with new year's celebrations, however, people are being urged to be considerate of other people's safety while on our roads," Ms Naisoro said.

"We do hope people will take this request seriously and work with the police to keep everyone safe," she added.
