Police are anticipating a lot of movement this week as people travel for the second term school holidays.

Police are calling on all drivers and road users to take extra precautions while travelling on the road.

With the hype of activities happening – like the Fiji Secondary Schools rugby finals, the Tadra Kahani and the Hibiscus Festival this week, people will be moving along the roads all around the country.

Drivers should be mindful of all pedestrians as many will be rushing to get to places.

Last year, pedestrians were the cause of most accidents and the Police are also calling on all pedestrians to be mindful while on the road.

Not only will there be movements on the road, students will also be travelling to outer islands to spend their two- week break with their loved ones.

Police are calling on students travelling to out islands to take heed of the weather before heading out.

The Police’s traffic department and other stakeholders will be present in numbers on our roads to see that movements are freely and safe.

Public service vehicles will be monitored since the safety of the people travelling will be the priority of relevant stakeholders that will be present on the roads.

So far, 29 people have lost their lives on the road compared to 23 in the same period last year.

Police are hoping that this weekend of movement will be incident free and will continue to work hard to see that everyone reaches their destination safely.
