The Fiji Police Force will now be able to better its traffic management with a timely donation from the World Health Organization today.
While receiving six breatherlyzers and a radar gun from WHO, Police Commissioner Sitiveni Qiliho says this is in line with their Operation Tatarovi.
He says they appreciate the technical support and the inclusion of Fiji and the World health Organization facilitated road safety.
Qiliho says Operation Tatarovi is geared towards addressing road fatalities as there was an increase last year.
WHO Representative and Director Pacific Technical Support Doctor Corinne Capuano says that these hand held devices that has been donated can do on the spot testing with print out of results.
He says this year they have decided to start early rather than waiting for the festive season when the road accidents are at its peak.
Qiliho says that the equipment will also help as he is worried that he is not seeing enough traffic officers from the Suva and Nausori stretch especially with the recent fatalities.Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
