The Fiji Police Force booked 2712 drivers for various offences between 17th to 28th September.

And these drivers will now be strictly monitored by the Land Transport Authority and will be taken to task should they repeat any of the offences.

According to a Police Spokesperson, Ana Naisoro,  the leading number of bookings once again is for speeding at 2270, non compliance of seat belt regulations 42, Careless driving 39  other Running Offences 361 with a total booking of 2712.

"Despite the repeated warnings and advisories this trend clearly demonstrates that people are not willing to cooperate with law enforcers and as such actions such as taking repeat offenders off our roads seems to be the best option."

"People need to be more considerate of other peoples safety and their rights to feel safe on our roads," she said.
