To date, more than 51, 000 speeding infringement notices have been issued to drivers.
Police Spokesperson Ana Naisoro says more than 1, 000 drivers have been arrested for drunk driving.
Naisoro says the road death toll currently stands at 64 compared to 61 for the same period last year and speeding and drunk driving continues to be a major concern.
She says as Fiji enters the festive season, traffic will be their major focus of operations.
Naisoro adds they anticipate an increase in movement and activities on our busy roads and as seen in the past, safety is not always prioritized.
Police is pleading with the public to take road safety seriously, however it is ultimately up to every individual on whether they want to listen and comply.
