Festive Season Road Safety

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is reiterating its advice to all motorists and members of the public to be mindful of road safety during this festive season.

Board Chairman Vijay Maharaj is reminding drivers to be more vigilant on the road and drive with caution during this festive season to make roads safer as we approach towards 2019.

“Some important road safety meas­ures which drivers need to follow are; driving within speed limits and adhere to traffic signals, don’t drink and drive and most importantly avoid any distraction while driving such as use of mobile phone, etc as this can cause serious accident.

“Drivers are also advised to be mindful of speed limits in towns and cities as roads will be busy so we need to have patience while driving,” Mr Maharaj said.

“Pedestrians are also advised to take extra care on the road to ensure their safety. Cross at traffic lights when the crossing sign appears and use zebra crossing where necessary to avoid accident.

Mr. Maharaj said that the LTA will be working with Fiji Police Force during this festive season to ensure an accident free season.

“We will be conducting road safety operations during this festive season with Fiji Police and drivers are ad­vised to be mindful of road rules at all times.

Mr Maharaj also wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
