The Land Transport Authority has clarified the defensive driving course is being provided and there has not been any ill treatment of LTA staff after SODELPA MP, Aseri Radrodro claimed in parliament today that some LTA offices have been closing down during the COVID-19 period and services like the defensive driving courses are not being rendered.

Radrodro claimed this while stating that government’s operating grant of $20 million for the LTA is questionable.

While speaking during the 2020/2021 National Budget debate, Radrodro also raised concerns saying that bookings are being mercilessly done by LTA and Police officers on our roads during this difficult time, given the pathetic conditions of our roads.

He further claimed the LTA management have been ill-treating staff and their working hours have been reduced, yet the operating grant for LTA has been increased.
