The Land Transport Authority of Fiji’s enforcement team is cracking down on illegal car racing activities through several combined operations with the Fiji Police Force, especially along Queen Elizabeth Drive in Nasese and other hot spot areas where these activities have been reported.

LTA has expressed grave concern over recent videos circulating on social media depicting illegal car racing activities on our roads.

Acting Chief Executive Officer Irimaia Rokosawa says illegal car racing on public roads is a blatant disregard for the law and a serious threat to public safety.

He says the consequences of these actions can be catastrophic, leading to severe injuries, loss of lives, and extensive damage to property.

In light of these concerns, the LTA is calling upon the public to actively co-operate with law enforcement authorities in identifying and reporting individuals engaged in illegal car racing activities.

Anyone with information regarding those involved in this dangerous driving behaviour is urged to come forward and report them to the authorities promptly.

Members of the public can report instances of illegal car racing or reckless driving by texting the registration number of the alleged vehicles to 582 or emailing complaints@lta.com.fj and help@lta.com.fj.

Details should also include time and location of the incident.

Meanwhile Fiji Motorsports Association President, Raizal Haniff has also called on those engaged in this dangerous recreational activity to refrain from endangering the lives of road users.

He says they see a lot of cars racing on our roads, and they strongly urge these drivers to refrain from engaging in this activity on public roads as this may cause accidents.

Hannif says their request to those drivers is to be patient as the association is exploring options to provide a race track so that these activities can be carried out in a safe space.
