Zero Deaths Pleases Qiliho

Police Commissioner Brigadier General Sitiveni Qiliho yesterday said it was extremely positive that the month of November recorded zero fatalities on Fiji’s roads.

“The fact that we can achieve zero road fatalities within a month is extremely positive news proving the notion that preventing the loss of lives on our roads is attainable,” Brigadier General Qiliho said.

“Annually we record an average of 40 to 50 lives lost on our roads, and while it seemed an impossible feat to record nil fatalities within a month, this has been proven wrong for the month of Novem­ber 2016.”

Brigadier General Qiliho pleaded with all road users to keep each other safe during the festive season.

“I plead with all road users, whether you are a driver, passenger or pedestrian to work with the Fiji Police Force to help keep each other safe especially during a period where there will be a lot of move­ment as we enjoy the festive season,” he said.

“While the month of December has unfortunately recorded three fatal acci­dents to date, what was achieved in the month of November makes me optimis­tic that we can save lives if we are to ad­here to road safety at all times.

“The road death toll currently stands at 52 compared to 61 for the same period last year and it is my hope that this fig­ure will not be increasing as we come to the end of another year.”
