Marshals play crucial role in road safety

THE LTA's road marshals play a crucial role in the fight for road safety enforcement in Fiji.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the country's 700 marshals were on the roads on an observer mission.

"They observe and report all infringements that occur on the roads," he said.

"They don't have powers to book, but are there to advise, encourage, give the public brochures and flyers."

Mr Sokia said while their line of work may not include powers to book, they educated and empowered the public on road safety.

"Their information is always credible and they have been a very useful tool to the LTA.

"They are an extended crucial arm and are the eyes and ears of the LTA on the ground.

"Therefore, it is very important for drivers to adhere to simple road safety rules because we have road marshals everywhere."

Road marshals are expected to increase.
