LTA calls for public support

THE Land Transport Authority aims to establish a good relationship with the general public in terms of enforcement on a daily basis.

As part of such efforts, the authority has requested the public to make it their businesses to always notify them of any traffic violation and offence they come across.

Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said people could help the authority by providing credible information that would allow them to investigate and enforce the law or issue traffic infringement notices (TINS) .

"Our strength is the people. If they talk or speak out openly and confront bad drivers, we are heading to a positive direction in terms of reducing road accidents," Mr Tuinaceva said.

"We need people to assist and co-operate with us. They must not be silent about road safety and we need them to be our partners because these are our roads, our Fiji and our safety. We have been very successful in some of the areas where people inform us about drivers who continue to use mobile phones while driving, drunkard drivers and those who drive recklessly or dangerously on our roads.

"This is the only way we can control traffic offences from escalating. The travelling public must remember that they have the right to talk to drivers if they fear for their lives on the road and must confront the drivers to slow down because they are paying their fares for that particular journey."
