Tuinaceva on spate of road accidents

The Land Transport Authority has reiterated its warning to drivers, passengers and pedestrians to exercise more care when using the road.
The advice follows the accident this morning in Suva where a private car lost control and landed on a slope.
LTA CEO Naisa Tuinaceva told FBC News that people are still not listening and taking into account the advice given to them.
“I would like at this stage appeal to the members of the public to the passengers that you have a role to do as a passenger. As you begin to see that the driver may not be concentrating, not focussing or doing something that is illegal, it is your job to shout, it is your job to tell and do it.”
Police are questioning the driver of the vehicle, who escaped injuries.
Last week four major accidents occurred in the central division with 11 passengers admitted at CWM hospital.
