The Land Transport Authority has urged self-responsibility towards road safety will save Fijians from losing their lives on the road.

The timely advise from the Land Transport Authority came with its warning for all road users to be extra vigilant.

Leading this safety drive is the LTA Board chairperson, Vijay Maharaj who is urging everyone to become a responsible road user and help in creating safer roads for Fiji.

This is bearing in mind that the week-long festivity starts in the Central Division together with the school holidays for teachers and children around the country.

Additionally, school children will be travelling around the country to participate and support their teams at the Fiji Secondary Schools Rugby Union annual Deans Trophy Finals today.

The two school events, the Powerade Schools Rugby Championship at ANZ Stadium in Suva and the Secondary Schools Inter-District Championship at Prince Charles Park in Nadi will see a lot of children and young adults travelling long distances as well.

Moreover, families will be travelling to enjoy the week-long 2018 Hibiscus Festival at Valelevu in Nasinu.

As a result, roads will be a lot busier than ever, but at the same time it will demand a lot of patience, care and obedience from the motorists, passengers and the pedestrians.

The LTA is therefore reminding all road users to be extra vigilant on the roads and bear in mind that self-responsibility towards road safety will save Fijians from losing any more lives on the road.

The LTA Board chairperson, Vijay Maharaj is also reminding drivers and parents to be mindful of road safety at all times.

The nation is yet to recover from the tragedy which happened last the weekend whereby seven innocent lives were lost.

“We must realise the grief, which is associated with road trauma and how it leaves families helpless- a life lost cannot be brought back, however, one can reach the destined journey late but safe,” Mr Maharaj said.
