Road Safety Program

The Road death toll on Tonga roads for 2012 decreased by 27%. Our Road Safety Program is among our successful intervention programs which has in the last three years resulted in the reduction of road fatalities.

Tonga Police is at the frontline of ensuring public safety on the roads. Our road safety program focuses on three main contributing factors to road crash:

  • Alcohol
  • Speed
  • Seat-belt 

Our Road Safety Program while re-enforcing road policing tactics such as the use of speed detection devices and breathalyzers as behaviour modification tools we also take a proactive approach by engaging the Community. Our Traffic Section currently works with Primary Schools and Community Police Posts in developing a ’safe pedestrian crossing’ program. We also hold media campaigns on road safety including the installation of Road Safety billboards throughout the country.
