Speeding continues to top the list of bookings in Fiji Police’s 3-day Operation Blitz that began Friday along the Sigatoka-Ba corridor.

Of the 676 bookings over the three days, 360 drivers were waved down for speeding. 70 for not adhering to seat belt regulations, 85 for dangerous driving, 9 drink and drive, 140 for illegal operations and 5 for driving without a license.

"This is of great concern because speeding is the leading cause of road fatalities and despite the numerous awareness campaigns, people still don't seem to care about their safety as well as the safety of others, which unfortunate to say is selfish,” Director Traffic SSP Mahesh Mishra said.

SSP Mishra says there is a need for people to change their attitudes.

He further said Operation Blitz will step up a notch from tomorrow with focus on traffic infringements and other criminal elements as they look to also assist the Western Division by beefing up manpower and increasing visibility on the ground.
