A total of 386 drivers have so far been signalled out for road infringements since the start of the red zone operation along the Sigatoka-Ba corridor Friday.

Of the 386, 198 drivers were booked speeding, 17 for seat belt related
offences, 61 for careless driving, five for DUI and 105 for other road offences.

It’s a cause for concern for the Fiji Police Force when compared to 10 recorded for the whole month of October last year.

Fiji Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro said traffic officers have been working throughout the weekend conducting checks and carrying out awareness in the West which include driver fatigue, pedestrians and road safety.

“The operation continues today along the Queens road with motorcyclists carrying out awareness along the Sigatoka to Rakiraki corridor,” she said.

The current road death toll stands at 34 compared to 38 for the same period last year.
