The Fiji Roads Authority spends millions of taxpayer dollars rebuilding roads in Fiji. Many of these roads have also included the creation of properly raised kerb footpaths which together with street lighting are a great safety benefit to pedestrians.

The second-largest cause of fatalities on our Roads is killing pedestrians.

The LTA have observed and have issued Traffic Infringement Notice’s (TIN’s) in respect of cars parked wholly or partially on footpaths. Local Authority Enforcement Officers will also enforce the Regulations and issue TIN’s accordingly.

Vehicle owners who park on footpaths cause damage to the kerbs and the pavement proper. The Fiji Roads Authority will prosecute those who damage the road infrastructure including footpaths.

Please do the right thing don’t park on footpaths – it could be a costly business!
