LTA warns against unruly behaviour

The Land Transport Authority is warning student passengers that they are not allowed to wave flags from moving buses and vehicles, as this poses a risk to buses, vehicles, and road users during major school sporting events that are currently being held.

In a statement, LTA said all students are being warned to adhere strictly to road safety measures and traffic laws.

Acting Chief Executive Irimaia Rokosawa said these acts will not be tolerated by the authorities and they will take action against students and the schools involved in these behaviour.

Rokosawa said that unruly behaviors are not only against the law but, also endanger the lives of passengers, pedestrians, and drivers alike.

Also, Road Safety and Education Manager Watilala Fonu said students found to be engaged in such unruly behaviors would be directed to exit the bus by LTA’s enforcement team as well as the Police, with their flags being confiscated.

Fonu said bus operators are also encouraging drivers not to tolerate unruly behaviour or play loud music, and to seek the assistance of the Police or LTA should the students continue to disregard road safety measures.

The Land Transport Authority is calling on parents, guardians, and the school community to instill safety-conscious behaviour among students and encourage them to be responsible passengers in cars, buses, and mini-buses.
