“Cases of careless driving was the highest with 5 cases recorded during the most recent period compared to 4 cases during the previous period.
“The good news is that no cases of presence of alcohol in the blood was recorded by officers and this shows that vehicles in Honiara are heeding the message, do not drink and drive.
“However drivers are still creating the extra third lane on our roads ignoring the continuous messaging to try and discourage this inconsiderate behaviour.
“I call on drivers who continue to ignore messages from the Traffic Centre because one day you will be caught.
“I call on honest drivers and the general public in Honiara to report any vehicles seen to be creating the third or any breach of the Traffic laws to the Kukum Traffic Centre so we can promote safer roads for our travelling public in our capital city.”
