Parking meters

Jan Nissar, Carlton NSW

I totally agree with Tukai’s sentiments about the state of Nadi Town, the so called jetset town. It’s not too different to a Little India nowadays.

When are the town councils of Nadi and Lautoka going to replace the parking metres with something more contemporary?

It is going to be the year 2020 in eight months. I guess the administrators are thinking why change anything if they are not broken.

Road Accidents

Farnaz Hussein, Lautoka

I would like to express my discontent to­wards the increase in number of road fatali­ties. This has been evident in the road death toll as at 15th April, 2019.

Eighteen (18) compared to 14 for the same period last year.

This is due to the alleged overspeeding of vehicles which lead to drivers losing control of their vehicles.

Speeding is the most common cause of road accidents in Fiji. Driving above the speed limit is a common practice for many motorists.

The faster a vehicle travels, the longer it takes to slow down in the event of an obsta­cle. Some of the other causes of road fatali­ties are drunk driving and getting distracted while driving.

It is necessary to take precautions while driving and always follow road rules while on the road.

Those motorists, who do not comply with the required standards and laws, should not be allowed on roads and their licences should be revoked.

Power outage

Simon Hazelman, Savusavu

On a regular basis up here in Savusavu we get the following text message from Energy Fiji Limited (EFL).

“Dear Customer, EFL will carry out main­tenance on the electricity line to your area on 29th April from 8.30am-4.30pm. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused”.

I have driven along our line each time I get the message to see if EFL maintenance workers are really working on the electric­ity line down our side, but nothing is going on? What is the real reason for these regular power outages?

Is it to carry out maintenance on the gen­erators? If so why isn’t there a service and maintenance programme that does not ne­cessitate shutting everything down at once?

Service one genset at a time and have elec­tricity available 24/7!

These eight-hour power shutdowns is a real nuisance!

Natuvu landing

Shariff Shah, Savusavu

So many people travel this route daily. Yet there is no waiting shed or proper toilet fa­cilities. Can our very good government look into this please. These same people have voted you into power

Family Care Leave

Sukha Singh, Labasa

To safeguard one’s working conditions is not only trying to protect your own self but your own family.

The union and the executives also are a big family .

So if you do take family care leave, you are not doing anything wrong.
