Drivers told to change attitude as traffic infringements increase

DRIVERS have to change their attitude and be receptive to road safety awareness campaigns, says LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

He described as disturbing statistics revealing that drivers were being booked for up to four times in a day for traffic infringements.

Responding to queries from this newspaper after the recent spate of road deaths, Mr Sokia said the LTA was extremely concerned by the continuing trend of reckless driving displayed by motorists.

"What we have noticed is people are getting booked up to four times a day for various traffic offences," he said.

"And this shows that motorists either don't care or don't understand the implications that their recklessness can have.

"People have no excuse now.

"The road safety message has been disseminated around the country through all media — television, radio and newspapers — so they cannot use the excuse that they don't know about the issues we are having on our roads."
