‘Bus Mishaps On Decline’

There has been a decrease in the number of accidents involving buses, says Deputy Director of Traffic Superintendent of Police Richard Ram.

SP Ram made the disclosure at the Fiji Bus Operators Association annual convention held at Novotel Suva Lami Bay Hotel Convention Centre on Saturday.

SP Ram said the Fiji Police was working in partnership with transport stakeholders in ensuring the safety and security of the travelling public.

“Fiji Police traffic control division is entrusted and empowered to enforce traffic laws in ensuring the safety of travelling public through enforcement, investigation and awareness; to assist the Land Transport Authority,” SP Ram said.

“Bus drivers and operators have a major responsibility because they take responsibility of many Fijians from one destination to another.”

SP Ram said there were some grievances raised pertaining to buses.

“Some grievances are vandalism, debris on the road after a vehicle breaks down and whom vehicle is removed, attitude of drivers, defective vehicles and bus conductors seating on the engine collecting bus fares,” SP Ram said.

“I urge the drivers to change their driving attitude for the safety of their passengers.”
