TAXIDRIVERS in Labasa have been sternly advised about making allegations against purported illegal operators in Labasa.

In a meeting at the Civic Centre building yesterday, LTA general manager operations Faiyum Ali said it was important for drivers to get their facts right before pointing fingers at others.

"Please, stop this hearsay attitude and try to get all the evidence before accusing any operator," he said.

"If you have concrete evidence against another driver, then you can approach us and we will conduct our investigations accordingly.

"Analyse your facts first before coming to us because it won't help if you make allegations against someone based on information you hear from the streets or from another person.

"We have received a lot of complaints from drivers about illegal operators but you should be certain and concrete when it comes to accusing someone."

Mr Ali has also requested the taxi, bus and carrier drivers to work with the police and LTA in controlling traffic infringements and illegal operations in Labasa.

"We should work together for the purpose of ensuring law and order on our roads."

Meanwhile, the LTA and police are joining forces on a road patrol on roads in the North.
