Police Commissioner Frank Prendergast has said the surge in traffic incidents in Honiara are a grave concern.
Commissioner Prendergast said police have recorded a total of 217 traffic cases this year.
He says this is quite a large data for Solomon Islands.
“To date, we’re early in 2015 and we’ve had 217 traffic cases opened now, which is quite a large number for a country this size.”
The Police Commissioner appeals to the public to take precautionary measures when using public roads.
