Car parks have been provided around Suva, however, people are still parking illegally. The Fiji Sun team drove around the Suva

to check out places where people were parking illegally.

Illegal parking is an issue that has been raised by Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) chief executive officer Jonathan Moore.

Mr Moore said motorists parking on yellow lines and footpaths were inconsiderate of other road users and are breaking the law.

“Illegal parking is becoming a concern for the FRA because it not only compromises pedestrian safety, but it continues to damage our infrastructure.” Mr Moore said.

“We are disappointed to see some drivers parking on the newly constructed footpath on the four lane project on Kings Road. This needs to stop immediately.”

He said they are working closely with the law enforcers to curb illegal parking and motorists who are found breaking the law will be dealt accordingly.

The Suva City Council (SCC) has plans to provide more gazetted parking because of the demands.

The SCC said they have booked a lot of drivers due to illegal parking.

They added there are a lot of cars on the road and drivers park anywhere they want and risking getting booked. The fine for illegal parking is $20.
