The Fiji Po­lice Force is con­vey­ing an early Christ­mas hol­i­day warning to par­ents to be vig­i­lant for the safety of their chil­dren on roads dur­ing this fes­tive sea­son.

Po­lice Di­rec­tor of Traf­fic Se­nior Su­per­in­ten­dent of Po­lice Ma­hesh Mishra said: “We are in­ter­pret­ing a busy pe­riod now es­pe­cially on the road, there is lot of move­ment of peo­ple on the road where chil­dren will be vis­it­ing their fam­i­lies. “We would like to sug­gest to par­ents that they should be very vig­i­lant and they need to be more care­ful and guide their chil­dren prop­erly.” SSP Mishra said above all peo­ple should take the re­spon­si­bil­ity for their own safety on the road. “Our temp op­er­a­tion will in­crease and we will en­sure that we max­imise the Po­lice vis­i­bil­ity and on the same to­ken peo­ple should un­der­stand that po­lice can­not be ev­ery­where at one time,” he said.

“Po­lice will also take ac­tion on peo­ple who are caus­ing un­nec­es­sary ob­struc­tion on our roads and peo­ple who will be driv­ing ve­hi­cles with­out driv­ing li­cences,” he said.
