Driver attitude a concern


Road Safety Authority Chief Executive Officer, Nelson Terema, says the careless attitude of some drivers is becoming a concern in the Nation’s capital.

Terema said recent accidents could have been avoided if drivers had followed traffic rules.

Mr. Terema said statistics supported that PNG is one of several countries with high accident rates.

“ We have high accident rates in the country, and many are caused by drivers ignoring traffic rules,” said Mr.Terema.

He says, RTA is now pooling resources to clamp down on drivers who continue to break traffic laws.

The Authority is now in the process of establishing a committee to address issues of licensing, overloading and other traffic-related matters. Mr. Terema says accidents will be minimised, if drivers are more responsible.

Meanwhile, the Road Traffic Authority is carrying out a study on the demand for, and supply of public transport throughout the country.

CEO Nelson Terema says the study, which is already underway, will help improve current public transport policies.
