THE LTA has been busy in the past week as they clamp down on illegal operators and defective motor vehicles.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said despite warnings and attempts illegal taxi and minibus operations continue.

He said everything had to be done in accordance to the law.

"We have never stopped our operations. Our enforcement team continues their work," he said.

"We usually seek the help of the police when we deal with illegal operators and removing defective vehicles off the road.

"People are continuing to use vehicles which have expired fitness and sometimes such vehicles can become a danger to other road users."

Meanwhile, LTA continues to use its new mobile speed cameras.

Mr Sokia said about a thousand vehicles were photographed breaking the speed limit.
