Divisional Traffic Officers from around the country are currently mapping out strategies in the National Traffic Dialogue at Suvavou House in a bid to prevent road fatalities in the festive season.
Police Director of Traffic, SSP Mahesh Mishra has told his traffic officers that they should not be reactive but be proactive to save lives on the roads.
55 people have died on our roads this year while 65 deaths were recorded for the same period last year.
Mishra says more accidents are now happening on good sealed roads and this is where their focus will be.
He says some passengers have lost their lives after they were thrown out of the vehicles as they were not wearing seat belts.
Mishra says passengers sitting at the rear of the vehicle also need to wear seat belts and his traffic officers will be enforcing this.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
