NINETY per cent of road fatalities were recorded in the Western Division and the Land Transport Authority has identified major red spot areas between Sigatoka and Ba, says spokesperson Iliesa Sokia.
He noted of the 33 deaths recorded on Fiji's roads, 24, including the 10 most recent incidents, occurred in the West and plans for a 24-hour surveillance operation were underway to combat a potential rise in numbers.
"It's a joint effort with the police," Mr Sokia said.
"We need the police to intensify our surveillance work and the policing of our roads.
"We are going to work together in a joint operation in the next one month or two so that we increase our visibility and mobility."
He said more checkpoints would strategically be set up from Sigatoka to Ba to raise road safety awareness among drivers.
"We will have driver intervention for half a minute with the issuance of some road safety fliers for both passengers and drivers," Mr Sokia said.
