THE Land Transport Authority is looking at ways to deter people from crossing anywhere they please, particularly at the Suva bus stand.

On May 6, a woman and her two year-old-daughter were crushed to death between two buses.

While a man has been charged with their deaths, much blame has also been given to commuters who cross as they please at the bus stand.

LTA chief executive Naisa Tuinaceva said since then, the Suva City Council had done great work by constructing rails and marking out areas to be used for crossing by passengers.

"We are looking at ways in which this issue can be dealt with. Fines is something that can be used but LTA believes largely in awareness and education," said Mr Tuinaceva.

"But we have been talking with all involved on the issue of fines. When booking drivers, it's easier, they have a licence and their vehicles are registered with us."
