Fiji’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) speed cameras captured 100 offenders in the 50km speed limit zone within 45 minutes.

LTA Spokesman Alfred Wiliame in a statement said the authority has identified that most of thespeeding areas are between the Sigatoka and Ba corridor.

The highest speed captured was a vehicle travelling at 110 km/hr.

Wiliame said 90 to 95 per cent of bookings come from just speeding alone and in every month and more than 2,000 drivers who discard these laws get booked.

“There will be more cameras along these areas to assist in reducing this unnecessary speeding behaviour. The new legislation governing these speed cameras will warrant vehicle owners to be more responsible in ensuring safety while driving.”

Other offences that the camera captured are seat belt and mobile usage offences by drivers which are among the common traffic offences.

LTA is calling to members of the public to come out and report any mischievous behaviour of drivers to the authority.

The LTA also urges parents to take responsible duties of their children when they are by the road side as the recent accidents of irresponsibility by parents has forced the authority to raise more awareness.
