4,163 drivers have been booked because of speeding during the first 15 days of Operation Tatarovi II.

1,933 drivers were booked in the Southern Division, 1000 in the Western Division, 609 in the Eastern while 621 drivers were booked in the Northern Division.

Chief Operations Officer, ACP Maretino Qiolevu says this is an extremely worrying trend proving that drivers continue to disregard the law and have no consideration for their safety and that of others.

650 drivers were booked for careless driving, 411 drivers were booked for not wearing seat-belts while 57 were arrested for drinking and driving. 

Operation Tatarovi II was launched at the beginning of the month to address the increasing number of road fatalities and accidents.

21 lives have been lost in road accidents this year while there were 15 fatalities for the same period last year.
