Lockington's Everyday Fiji ... Life Goes On

Bus Accidents

Bus accidents  have been in the news recently. In a discussion with my mates in Mulomulo, someone said  bus drivers are forced to drive defective buses  because if they refuse they can lose their jobs.

So, if they take the bus, and because the defect  there's  a fatal accident who is liable, the driver or the owner? Or both?

                                 Car Part Scam

So the car part scam has started again.

At one time Lautoka was famous for cars being stolen and stripped for parts, I know because my car was stolen. Fortunately, people in Rifle Range Lautoka saw the car parked there with teenagers standing around it. They called the police who arrived in an instant. The thieves got away taking the spare tire, stereo system, money and other stuff, but at least I had the car. Others are not so lucky.

A report says this scam is based on demand and there are garages that are part of the scam.

The police need to act on these reports but car owners also need to be more careful about where they park their cars. And they shouldn't leave bags or other stuff in the car that will lure thieves to break in and steal them.  We need to be more careful.
