Nine sports cars were yesterday seized along the Queen Elizabeth drive in Suva by Police for causing unnecessary noise, illegal modifications and racing.
Fiji Police chief of operations ACP Rusiate Tudravu confirmed the seizure to FijiLive today and the cars are now at the Land Transport Authority’s premises for inspection because according to Fiji Police, the drivers did not have any confirmation for the modifications done to their vehicles under the Land Trasport Authority Act.
LTA spokesperson Alfred Wiliame said that LTA officers are currently attending these vehicles and notices will be sent to the car owners for the supplementary modifications they have opted to use in their cars.
“After the vehicle inspections notices will be issued to these drivers but they will have to go to Togotogo Police station to take their vehicles home if the Police permit to,” Wiliame said.
He also added that LTA has nothing to do in this matter as this seizure had been made by Fiji Police and LTA will inspect these vehicles as any other vehicle.
