Board unaware of issue

THE Fiji Taxi Association says the Land Transport Authority had no problems with the use of advertisement stickers on the rear windscreens of vehicles.

FTA president Mohammed Hafiz said the association's board was unaware of comments made by association general secretary Rishi Ram.

"No directive was given to us," he said.

"As far as we are aware and our members are concerned, there have been no complaints by the drivers with regards to the advertisements on the rear windscreens of vehicles.

"LTA has been well aware of this. If the drivers break any laws and regulations on the road, then they have to face the consequences."

Mr Hafiz also said FTA did not condone stealing from passengers.

This comes after the Consumer Council of Fiji earlier raised concerns regarding some taxidrivers dishonestly charging fares for tourists in Suva.
