Concerns over corrupt practices

FIJI Driving Schools Association president Deo Narayan has issued a warning to association members to keep corruption out because it was contributing to the road death toll.

Mr Narayan, who was in Lautoka to attend a special meeting of the association's western branch, said he was aware of schools falsifying the certification of learners without conducting proper training.

"I must implore you all of the important role you play as driving instructors," he said.

"Our core of business is to produce safe drivers for the country, but some schools have been corrupted through the issuing of false certification just to balance their books."
