Traffic infringements up

THERE are some drivers who have accumulated more than 30 traffic infringement notices.

This and the attitudes of some drivers need to change, says Land Transport Authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

He said drivers would be monitored based on the amount of infringement notices issued to them.

"When drivers have more than 30 notices, we will be giving them a warning letter informing them to change their driving attitudes or else they will face harsh penalties from the LTA," he said.

"Most of the public service vehicle drivers that have been charged are repeat offenders and they are booked over and over again for the same offence."

According to Mr Sokia, operators of public service vehicles should employ drivers after careful evaluation.

"If drivers have previous fines or criminal elements surrounding them, the operators should be stern and manage them well.

"Any indiscipline should not be tolerated. PSV vehicle operators should place utmost priority on the safety of members of public.

"They should inform their drivers to adhere to road rules as we have reiterated so many times. Over speeding is the most common cause of road accidents and we are urging drivers again to be cautious on our roads."
