Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

    Passenger Safety

 People will be wondering  and saying, "Well, I never."

We read that a mini van traveling from Nadi to Suva  caught fire near Nabukavesi and the driver allegedly refused to stop when passengers heard a noise coming from the engine. If this is true, can the driver be charged, and after inspection of the van can the owner be charged  if the fault was caused by negligence or wiring for speakers.

Public service vehicles must be safe to travel in and it doesn't help when arrogant drivers refuse to stop. It seems some drivers only want to get to the destination and return so that they can earn more. The lives of people on whom they depend for their pay comes in second.

As a matter of further concern, is it true that fuel lines on some buses are made of plastic?

Allen Lockington is a self-employed customs agent and business consultant who has regular articles published in Fiji. I thank Allen for permission to reprint some of them in this political blog. They remind us that life goes on, whatever the political situation. And it's good to know that.
