Forty-two sites on our roads have been declared “death spots’’.
They have claimed 55 lives so far this year.
They are also referred to as ‘black spots’ or ‘high crash sites’.
Navo Bridge in Nadi tops the list, claiming four lives.
The “death spots” were identified following a recent assessment and survey of road deaths this year by the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva said the exercise was to raise awareness on these danger spots and help prevent accidents.
“Now that we are familiar with the number of “death spots” on our roads, it will help the authority as a whole in putting some preventative measure. What we want is to act proactively now and find ways accident can be avoided especially the fatal ones,” Mr Tuinaceva said.
The authority, he said, would be working with other relevant authorities on the possibility of erecting more road safety signs.
“They are not placed there as a decoration on the road, they are there for a special purpose giving guidance to every motorists 24/7, but people seem to ignore the call or the signs and may result in people getting involved in accidents and some can be fatal,’’ he said.
