Repeat offenders a worry

Shayal Devi
Monday, March 24, 2014

THE rising number of repeat offenders in the West is of concern to the LTA.

Spokesman Iliesa Sokia said most offenders were being repeatedly booked for the same offence.

"It's a concern to us because this type of behaviour shows they are basically law-breakers and dangerous drivers," he said.

"Right now, we are trying to categorise the drivers as dangerous and notorious depending on the amount of infringement notices issued to them.

"Should drivers have more than 20 notices, they are considered dangerous and if they surpass 30 and near 40 notices, they become notorious and this is the stage we will start pulling them off the road by suspending their driving licence."

Mr Sokia said drivers in the West were cautious not to over speed because of LTA's current heavy presence in the region.

"And another factor is our latest introduction of the triple E concept of road safety which is the integrating of educational, encouragement and enforcement under which we try and educate drivers, encourage them to behave and know all the relevant road rules and regulations and empower them to be responsible drivers."
