FLP to review LTA

THE Fiji Labour Party intends to carry out a comprehensive review of the Land Transport Authority and its operations if it forms the next government.

It wants to review all fees and charges which it says "place an intolerable burden on vehicle owners".

The party said it would scrap the road user levy, remove the defect notice fine of $14.50 and increase the speed limit on the Suva-Nausori corridor to 60 kilometres.

"Labour will rationalise the issuing of taxi permits. We believe that permits are being issued unfairly," the FLP said in a paid advert yesterday.

"Some big companies or individuals own over 100 permits and use these to engage contract drivers on unfair terms," it claimed.

The FLP said it would redistribute taxi permits in a manner so that contract drivers also have the opportunity to become taxi owners.
