The number of accidents on our roads continues to grow. Many are a result of speeding.

Our roads are not suitable for such high speeds. That and the lack of patience and care is one of main reasons we see so many accidents.

Therefore kudos to the Fiji Car Club for continuously hosting drag racing and time trials at the Nanuku Aerodrome near Pacific Harbour.

This gives an opportunity those who have a passion for speed but do not want to illegally race on the roads.

The drag wars held yesterday in Pacific Harbour were a big hit with many street legal cars participating.

The drag wars see two cars racing together down the runway competing against each other.

The Fiji Car Club aims to have at least eight events this year and with continuous events, it would be a good avenue for those wanting to race.

In fact, it would be good to see the Land Transport Authority partnering with the Fiji Car Club with such events.

Anything to get drivers to race in a controlled environment and keep others on the road safe.

Serious action needs to be taken to curb the accidents on our roads.

Driver attitude needs to change.

Promoting safer roads is the aim of Fiji Car Club. Let’s all get behind this initiative. Stop overspeeding on our roads.

And let those with a passion for this do it with Fiji Car Club in a safe and controlled environment on the Nanuku Aerodrome
