Delays in colour coded taxi plates for Central Division
February 24, 2021 5:32 am
The use of colour coded number plates for taxis in the Central and Eastern Divisions has been delayed for over five-months.
Land Transport Authority Chief Executive, Samuel Simpson, says this is a strategy to help track taxis that are supposed to be legally operating in their area.
Simpson adds almost every taxi operator in the greater Nadi and Lautoka areas have colour coded number plates.
“We have almost completed Nadi and Lautoka. We will then move down to the Central and Eastern Divisions and you’ll start to see orange colour plates at the Central and Eastern.”
He also says there are delays for taxis in the Central and Eastern Divisions as various processes have to be followed including the annual renewal of road worthiness.
