Impatience Award

The award for the most impatient drivers this week should go to the drivers of these two taxis.

What were they thinking? They knew they were on one of central Suva’s busiest streets, Vishnu Deo St, where traffic is usually busy and crawls even after midday. The average speed there is usually around 30 km per hour and less.

Accidents are rare there so who was at fault? This is a lesson to taxi drivers who are always speeding to get to the next job – slow down.

Legal Times

Much joy from the Fiji Times when the Motibhai newspaper and staff were acquitted by the judge in the Nai Lalakai sedition trial. But the legal issues might be far from over.

We know the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has already filed an appeal against the newspaper and some being acquitted.

Publisher Hank Arts, now preparing for his departure from the Fiji Times, is amongst them.

We also hear the then Nai Lalakai editor – and longtime Fiji Times employee – Anare Ravula might have been seeking some legal help on employment issues.

roads that work

Those travelling to Vatukarasa village, a 45 minutes drive from the Kings Road, for the opening of the Vatukarasa Nursing Station in Tailevu will agree.

The road was in superb condition.

Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama would have been pleased. He has been stressing that roads in rural areas and the maritime zone must be upgraded too.

Not just those serving the cities and towns.

THING WE LIKE

The good service, food, and smiles in the Tappoo Sigatoka store cafe.     

THINKS WE DON’T LIKE

Pedestrians ignoring the traffic lights and dodging cars in the Suva CBD. And doing so with impunity.
