Police begin road safety awareness operation

Thursday, February 01, 2018

Update: 11:28AM OPERATION Tatarovi, a national operation aimed at creating awareness on the five leading causes of accidents and fatalities in Fiji has begun today.

Chief Operations Officer, Acting Assistant Commissioner of Police Maretino Qiolevu said the month long operation is in line with the Commissioner of Police's intent on major operations focusing on crimes and road fatalities. 

"Seventy lives were lost due to road accidents in 2017 and to date three people have died as a result of motor vehicle accidents compared to six for the same period last year," Acting ACP Qiolevu said.

"While officers will be stepping up the tempo of traffic operations we do hope that members of the public will work with us in keeping our roads safe," he said.

"As stakeholders work together to create awareness on road safety the onus is up to every individual to listen and comply."

Meanwhile, the five leading causes of accidents and fatalities in Fiji are speeding, drink and drive, dangerous driving, pedestrian at fault and driver fatigue.
