More collaboration is needed to address the road death toll. Director of Traffic Senior Superintendent Mahesh Mishra said there were 27 deaths on our roads this year compared to 34 for same period last year.

“We believe in collaboration to address emerging traffic issues we have on our roads and to get the work done on time and more efficiently,” SSP Mishra said.

Commissioner of Police Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho said the Police would work hand in hand and the more they worked towards addressing this issue the better for them.

“We cannot simply remove the number of vehicles because it has become more affordable for everyone and we need to manage the increase of cars on our roads as it has now become a key issue for the police,” Brigadier General Qiliho said.

“We must be more proactive in dealing with issues as we cannot remove ourselves from the issues we have at hand.”

The highest fatalities on our roads so far were caused by over speeding.
