With the school holidays on and festive season back, Police will be monitoring the movement of people.
This is especially for those travelling to the capital city daily.
The Fiji Police Force is pleading with parents and members of the public to observe traffic rules and avoid jaywalking.
The Police director traffic, Senior Superintendent of Police Mahesh Mishra, said with many activities happening at the same time, people should be on their best behaviour.
“With the festive season and the school holidays around, I am asking parents to be vigilant especially those coming from rural areas.
“Please be aware that jaywalking is not going to be entertained here in the capital and you will be fined if caught breaking the jaywalking rules,” SSP Mishra said. SSP Mishra said the police is working with the Land Transport Authority to monitor motorists and pedestrians during the Hibiscus Festival period. He said road marshalls will be stationed in various locations in a bid to see that people abide by the road rules.
“The main problem is that most adults are showing ignorance when using the roads and they do not teach their children the importance of being good road users.
