Bus vandalism

VANDALISM is an ever increasing problem evident in public service vehicles.

LTA's media liaison officer Iliesa Sokia said the operation of public service vehicles were governed by laws and regulations and it was sad to know the public were vandalising buses.

"It's a daily occurrence and it's a pity the public are involved, the very people the bus service was meant for, the very people bus operators go out and invest millions of dollars to bring in top of the range and high quality bus to enjoy and be comfortable in," Mr Sokia said.

Mr Sokia said it's a dilemma for people to see at first sight rude drawings and vulgar words.

He said there was a need to educate the public on their role, the driver's role and the role of buses and to take ownership of services provided to them.

President of the Fiji Bus Operators Association Virendra Kewal said this problem was common among students who used buses for transport to reach school.
