LTA maps safety plan

LTA has mapped out new strategies to aggressively approach every household in the country in its bid to spread the gospel of road safety.

This week, some of the officials will reach out to the garden island of Taveuni to conduct house-to-house visitations and information sharing.

Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said the officials would first complete Taveuni before making their way to other parts of Cakaudrove, Bua and Macuata.

"The LTA is passionate about its public awareness and outreach programs and it wants to reach out to all people and empower them to embrace and take ownership of road safety," Mr Tuinaceva said.

"The geographical isolation of places and the limited resources will not stop officials from visiting homes, community, rural settlements, villages and maritime islands to build and enhance their capacity in understanding road safety.

"The two LTA public awareness programs have engaged officials on a fulltime basis.

"One team consists of the road marshal club volunteers and the other is an outreach and awareness team that promotes all LTA services to the people right at their doorsteps and served them at their level."

House-to-house visitation, Mr Tuinaceva said was also a daily exercise that required volunteers to identify homes that had not been visited by the LTA.
