Driver suspended for a year

A DRIVER in the Central Division who had more than 100 traffic infringement cases has had his licence suspended for a year.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the strategy was aimed at creating safer roads by removing habitual offenders.

"We want to remove bad drivers from the roads and we are targeting drivers who have more 20 than TINS (traffic infringement notices) to their names as they are classified dangerous," Mr Sokia said.

"The authority will begin its usual disciplinary proceedings against them according to the law which is a proper seven days notice, followed by a show cause to determine the actions taken against them.

"Two weeks ago the authority suspended 40 driving licences alone in the West and we will not hesitate to suspend or terminate licences depending on the severity of the offence."
