Speed­ing thrills, but it kills!

Her­leen Emily Ku­mar, Nadi Speed­ing thrills, but it kills! A mo­tion that keeps on driv­ing me ahead on roads is that some­day road of­fend­ers may re­alise their mis­take and there may be a de­crease in fa­tal ac­ci­dents. How­ever, I seem not to see any im­prove­ment on the road while trav­el­ing. There may be a lot of aware­ness cre­ated in the so­ci­ety about safe driv­ing but un­til and un­less there aren’t more of poli­cies and reg­u­la­tions im­ple­mented while driv­ing, there will still be road of­fend­ers. Nowa­days, what has cre­ated space in the minds of many young driv­ers is that they are ‘’too good’’ on roads. For oth­ers they may be drink­ing and driv­ing or for some they may not be fol­low­ing the ba­sic road safety rules. This makes up the whole causes of fa­tal ac­ci­dents in our coun­try. It has not stopped since last year that we hear of­fend­ers re­peat the same of­fenses while on the road.

At the end of the day, I just don’t un­der­stand why driv­ers do not fol­low sim­ple ba­sic road rules? Is it the LTA lack­ing it’s role or we as road uses can­not abide by law. Is it be­cause, many LTA of­fi­cers have been in our fa­vor for ig­nor­ing road of­fend­ers. And is it; why it has be­come a road chain of of­fend­ers? You think but the choice is yours. Act against cor­rup­tion to end road of­fend­ers or act against both to erad­i­cate fa­tal ac­ci­dents in Fiji
