The Land Transport Authority says they usually see an increase in road accidents and fatalities during holiday seasons and adds their teams will be working with Police to make sure road safety rules are complied with.

Acting Chief Executive, Irimaia Rokosawa says drunk driving, speeding and plain negligence are the main causes of road accidents.

Rokosawa says no amount of celebration justifies disregarding the road safety rules and their teams will ensure that road traffic rules are being followed.

He says those who are caught whilst driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs could be spending the remainder of the long weekend in Police custody as there will be zero tolerance.

Rokosawa also says that the road rules apply to all Fijian road users and not just to motorists.

Rokosawa is reminding road users to be cautious when travelling and strictly follow all road rules this long weekend with the volume of traffic and congestion expected to increase.
