Speeding a challenge

Salaseini Moceiwai

THE police traffic department is anticipating more minor traffic infringement cases given the high number of drivers in the country.

In an interview in Labasa on Thursday, director traffic SSP Mahesh Mishra said the most common case they dealt with daily was speeding.

"This is a challenge for us daily because we continue to book drivers for speeding," he said.

"This is not only an issue here in the North but throughout Fiji. Such a situation has prompted us to increase our presence on the roads and also work with LTA in our attempts to control such cases.

"We have mapped out our strategies for the North this year and this will mean more visitations to villages located along the roadsides."

SSP Mishra said the visits target road safety as well as stray animals and other road-related issues.

"For serious offences such as dangerous driving, we are taking full enforcement."
