Authorities are urging motorists not to move road closure signs or attempt to drive around barricades blocking flooded roadways.
This comes as heavy rain and floodwaters continue to affect some roads and crossings.
Authorities say road closure signs are placed for the safety of motorists and by entering floodwaters they are potentially risking their own lives and those of the emergency services.
Fijians are again being reminded not to swim, drive, or walk-in floodwaters.
Motorists are also urged to also be aware of the possibility of rock falls, landslides and debris on the roadway amidst heavy rain.
