The Fiji Police Force has advised all motorists to take all necessary precautions along the main highways in the Western Division as the crushing season has commenced.

With a high number of fully loaded cane trucks anticipated to be using our busy roads, drivers and pedestrians are requested to adhere to all road rules and be mindful of their safety.

Police warned, overtaking these trucks is also advised against as in the past such practice has led to accidents.

Police is pleading with all road users to assist them as they cannot be everywhere to monitor everyone’s behavior and need public help in keeping our roads safe.
