2014's first road fatality

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

THE Fiji Police Force is asking pedestrians and motorists to be careful while using roads.

The warning follows the country's first road fatality — just 13 days into the new year.

"The force has already recorded one death as a result of a road accident compared to three cases for the same period last year," police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said yesterday.

"There have been a few serious accidents recorded since the start of the new year and with school just around the corner, we are once again urging motorists to be mindful of our children especially before and after school hours.

"Speeding continues to be an issue and unless drivers can fully comprehend the danger they pose to other road users when they disregard road rules, only then we can expect to see a reduction in road accidents and fatalities," she said.
