Fiji’s Land Transport Authority’s ended Friday its third phase of Red Zone Operation along the Sigatoka-Ba corridor.

During the operation, LTA issued 2204 traffic infringement notices to traffic offenders, 2907 defect orders to defective vehicles that had major and minor defects on their vehicles and had impounded 194 vehicles that were expired or were unfit to travel on Fiji roads.

This first operation was in June and the second happened in August.

“Our strategy is to stay focus on our objective and that is to be there on the road to keep it safe. The task that we do daily is to provide safer roads, ensure safer vehicles are used on the roads, keep a close watch on driver behaviour and attitude and most importantly that we maintain our consistency on those factors.” LTA CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said in a statement.

Tuinaceva said that with the number of accidents happening on Fiji roads it was imperative for LTA to be more resilient in their approach to road safety.

 “The increasing number of offences recorded from this corridor is unbelievable. At certain times we receive more than a thousand bookings and that is a great concern.

“These are simple offences such as failure to produce driver’s licence and failure to wear seat belts. We maintain that we will come down hard on those who are frequent offenders and do not comply with the Law.”
.
From stats received, speeding topped the list followed closely by dangerous driving.

 “We are introducing hasher and heavier penalties as a deterrent factor to minimise continued offences daily. We want to inform the public that LTA is not going to be complacent on our enforcement operations.”

He said the main aim of the Red Zone operation is to remind drivers to be responsible when driving and be mindful of Road Safety rules.
