SPEEDING tops Fiji’s infringement bookings.

This was highlighted by Deputy Commissioner of Police Rusiate Tudravu who said it was sad to see that accidents occur because of speeding.

ACP Tudravu said their intention was to minimise and manage fatalities on the road, however, they could not do that alone.

He added they needed to work together with other stakeholders to address this concern.

He said more than 50 per cent of speeding cases were because of drivers’ conduct and attitude, which was not in line with the law in terms of the speed limit.

ACP Tudravu said drivers were their main focus and that they should abide by the law and go according to the speed limit.

He added that part of their festive operations was concentrated on traffic control in highways.

He said people could expect the deployment of officers from this week.
