The Fiji Police Force and Land Transport Authority will soon investigate more than 2700 drivers booked for various traffic offences.
Out of the 2712 drivers that were booked during a two-week joint programme, 2270 drivers were handed speeding tickets, 42 for non compliance of seat belt regulations, 39 for careless driving and 361 for other running offences.
“These drivers will be subject to further action if they are repeat offenders, despite the repeated warnings and advisories this trend clearly demonstrates that people are not willing to co-operate with law enforcers and as such actions such as taking repeat offenders off our roads seems to be the best option,” Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said.
Ms Naisoro said people needed to be more considerate and mindful of other road users, especially pedestrians.
“People need to be more considerate of other people’s safety and their rights to feel safe on our roads,” she said.
The programme began on September 17 and ended on Friday, with road marshals and other highway patrol officials concentrating on the red zone area which is along the Sigatoka-Ba Highway.
