My only advice to drivers is to drive safely. There is a speed limit when using the road but some people still drive past the limit. There are also laws for the road. If you don't have a license then you shouldn't drive a car. Alcohol should be avoided if you are driving.

People who are driving should consider the safety of the passengers, especially when they start driving too fast. I would advice the driver to drive slowly and to consider road safety and to avoid driving if they are drunk.

Drinking and driving should be stopped because it causes accidents. More road laws should be enforced to avoid any more accidents happening. Drivers with no license shouldn't be on the road at all. In my opinion, there isn't enough done during practical exams when people get their license.

If you are drunk then don't drive. People who drink alcohol should drink at home to avoid driving around while they are drunk. The process of getting a license should be more effective so that drivers would understand road laws.

Lolesio Maletino, 19, Mulivai-Safata

Avoid being nervous while driving a car and if you drink then don't drive. A person who drives a car should always consider the safety of the public. Getting a license should be more strict and the exams to get a license should be more effective so that people will be more informed about safety and about laws we have to follow when we are driving.

I would like to advise taxi drivers and bus drivers to consider the safety of the passengers. Earlier me and my friend were in a taxi and on the way the driver seemed to be a bit angry and started to drive fast. My advice to these drivers is to drive carefully and think of the safety of the passengers.
