The four day joint operation in partnership with the Fiji Police Force, Land Transport Authority and Suva City Council targeting public service vehicles came to an end yesterday.

Operation “Suraksha” was conducted between the Navua and Nasinu corridor did not only include static spot checks on all PSV’s but awareness on various issues.

Vehicles checked included buses, minibuses, omnibuses as well as taxis. Majority of the checks were conducted between the urban are.

Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said, “While deemed minor in nature some of the defects notices issued was due to oil leaks, broken lights and failure to keep driving records, the joint operation has been deemed a success as it managed to nip these problems in the bud while still minor.”

However, with the current concern on the driving behaviour of bus drivers continuous lecture sessions with bus drivers will continue in partnership with the Police and LTA.

Meanwhile, Naisoro elaborated on speeding issues, which has been considered as a major concern.

Upon the completion of the joint “Red Zone” Operation between the Fiji Police Force and Land Transport Authority speeding topped the number of offences committed during the operation period.

The operation which focused on the Sigatoka to Ba corridor saw 1,165 drivers booked in Phases 1 & 2.
