Repeat offenders should buckle up as the Land Transport Authority (LTA) is considering taking them off the road.
This is after the LTA revealed that up to 2700 drivers were booked by the Fiji Police Force for not complying with road rules. LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said despite many warnings and awareness exercises motorists still continued to break the law.
“This simply shows the Authority that people are not concerned and are not willing to cooperate to follow the law. If this continues there would be no option but to take these drivers off the road because we aim to make our roads safer for all road users,” Mr Tuinaceva said.
Mr Tuinaceva said those who already booked would be under very close scrutiny by the Authority from now on. He said if more than ten previous infringement notices were served on them they could have their licences suspended. Meanwhile 2712 drivers would be investigated by the Police and LTA after they were booked for various offences over a two-week joint operation.
