Road ac­ci­dents

Fiji Sun - - Comment -

Ronnie Chang, Nadi

Two ac­ci­dents, on Western Di­vi­sion roads, namely in Nanuku in Raki­raki and Sa­beto near Nadi are again need­less sta­tis­tics. I am again of the se­ri­ous and wor­ry­ing view there are far too many ir­re­spon­si­ble and ar­ro­gant driv­ers who do not de­serve to be driv­ing on our roads. More than enough has been said by all author­i­ties con­cerned. Noth­ing more should be said. Far too much valu­able time is taken by hard work­ing Courts which are al­ready over­bur­dened by huge vol­umes of work.

Stupid traf­fic ac­ci­dents must be dealt with im­me­di­ate and pro­fes­sional prom­ness. Laws, where needed, must be amended to fa­cil­i­tate swift jus­tice. On the spot fines and penal­ties must be­come the new “or­der of the day” and made ir­rev­o­ca­ble. Sadly, a young mother and daugh­ter have lost their lives so very un­nec­es­sar­ily.

Sadly, their loved ones are left to mourn this need­less grief, pain, suf­fer­ing and grossly un­bear­able loss. We pray our Heav­enly Fa­ther rest their souls. We also re­mem­ber their fam­i­lies in their time of much sad­ness. All care­less driv­ers must have im­me­di­ate sus­pen­sions of their driver’s li­cense plus hefty fines that hurt their pock­ets badly. There is no po­liter way to ex­press my re­peated con­cerns and anger. Our Courts must not be bur­dened by such cases.
