3 Additional Speed Cameras

The Land Transport Authority is looking to buy  three more mobile speed cameras this year.

This is part of plans by the authority to beef up its visibility on the road to remove reckless over-speeding drivers.

LTA spokesperson Iliesa Sokia said overspeeding had been identified as the major cause of road accidents.

“We see this as the only way and solution to be proactive on our road to help eliminate and remove overspeeding,” Mr Sokia said.

“These cameras would be placed at accident-prone areas and we are buying these because of their mobility and they’re easy to operate.”

There are two mobile speed cameras operating between Sigatoka and Rakiraki while two static speed cameras are in operation at Nabua and Kinoya.

Drivers captured on the cameras for not following road rules are being issued with Traffic Infringement Notices (TIN).

If the offenders fail to pay their fines, the notice also includes the date the offender has to appear in a Magistrates Court.
