LTA Sees Change In Drivers

There has been a change in the attitude of drivers, says Land Transport Authority chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva.

Mr Tuinaceva made this comment after the authority recorded zero road fatalities during their Christmas and Boxing Day operations around Fiji.

“From the authority we can say that it was one of our best Christmas weekends because there wasn’t any major incident recorded on our roads,” Mr Tuinaceva said.

“We had increased our visibility on our roads and there were hardly any drunk driving cases and this surely shows that the attitude of drivers had been more positive.”

He however said this would not stop them continuing their awareness on roads.

Mr Tuinaceva has assured that LTA would not slacken their control on roads after January 1.

“There will be a change of emphasis for the authority from next year. All our educational road safety awareness will be based on careless, inconsiderate driving and overspeeding,” Mr Tuinaceva said.

“All our efforts, work and resources will be used solely on these three areas.”

This, he said, was because these areas had been identified as some of the main contributing factors of road fatalities this year.

“We will be engaging the public and motorists a lot in ensuring that 2015 is an accident-free year. We do not just want to reduce it but we want do not want it to happen at all,” he said.
