Illegal parking concerns LTA

Apr 24, 2018

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is advising motorists not to park cars illegally as this could result in fines or penalties being imposed against them.

The increasing number of Traffic Infringement Notices (TINs) issued to the motorists by LTA in a joint operation with the Fiji Police so far this year has resulted in a worrying concern to the Authority.

Since January 2018, a total of 1,361 TINs were issued to the motorists for incorrect parking and parking on the footpath.

According to the Land Transport Traffic Regulation 20 (1) (b), it is an offence to park a vehicle on a partly or wholly constructed footpaths.

It is unfortunate to see drivers continuing to park on the footpaths which are made for pedestrians.

Additionally, the concerned public continues to register their complaints about motorists who illegally park and block driveways, street corners and drivers line of sight at junctions.

Parking at a right space will free motorists from fines or create traffic congestions and accidents on the roads.

The motorists are therefore advised that they must adhere to the signs displayed on the roads and not illegally park anywhere. Furthermore, the drivers of vehicles will be held accountable for their wrong actions should there be any incidents such as deaths or damages to others properties.

Thus, people are being advised to report any illegal parking to the LTA using the LTA text platform 582, landline 3392166 or email at with the vehicle numbers so that the LTA can reach out to them.
