Road rules

A PNG delegation is on a three-day fact finding mission in Fiji to learn about the operations of the Land Transport Authority.

Nelson Terema, the director of the PNG National Roads Safety Council, said they had much to learn from LTA's operations which could be applied back home.

"We have issues of monitoring, under reporting and we do not have a reliable database in place," said Mr Terema.

"These are things which we hope to learn from Fiji's LTA which we believe has developed some effective means to do their work.

"Back home road safety is something of a non-issue and we are trying to change that."

LTA chief executive Naisa Tuinaceva said the first step was to get things done through legislation to give LTA the power to enforce rules and safety issues.
