The areas of operation will include:

• Honiara City Council roundabout.

“There will be a high visibility police presence in the identified locations.”

Inspector Vaea adds: 

“The traffic operation is to enforce the Traffic Act to ensure a safe and continuous flow of traffic, ensure public buses do not block the traffic and they comply with all relevant laws.”

“I appeal to vehicle owners, pedestrians and drivers to corporate with police during the operation. We will check for driving licenses, third party documents and vehicle licences during the operation.”
