LTA: 'Accept' blame

Repeka Nasiko
Thursday, April 10, 2014

PUBLIC service vehicle licence holders should accept some of the blame in the increase of illegal operators on national roads, says LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

Mr Sokia said it was the poor service that illegal operators had become a preferred mode of transport in certain areas.

"When a driver has a PSV permit, it means he is there to serve the public 24/7," he said.

"Some of them are not providing that service and that is where the illegal operators come in."

Mr Sokia said there may be a need to relook at illegal operators.

"This is because of the demand that exists in certain areas.

"So, if the demand is there, then we will need to look at issuing licences to these operators."
