Police have repeated cautions to motorists after two road accidents yesterday.

Few other details were available from police, but a statement confirmed that one accident happened in Navua and the other in Nausori. There were no fatalities.

According to police, the road death toll stands at 35 compared to 30 in the same period last year.

In a police statement, Police spokesperson Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said: “Police have been receiving reports of accidents in the last 48 hours but fortunately they were not serious,” he said.

“As the Hibiscus Festival is in full swing, our roads especially on the main island will be busy conveying people from everywhere to the capital.

“With the new venue for the festival, police are urging vehicle owners to be careful where they park their cars.”

“Police will continue to have their presence felt in order to remind all road users about maintaining law and safety on our road,” he said.

“Random road blocks will be set up in different places on odd times to keep motorists on their toes and create awareness to members of the public.”

“Any driver found breaching the law will be dealt with seriously as the Fiji Police Force will be strict in order to make our roads safer for everyone,” he said.

Police will be assisted in traffic management during the busy school holiday season by the municipal councils and the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
