Fiji was a part of the British Empire and as a result drives on the left. The roads are genarally quite good around the towns and the resorts but in the less frequented areas you'll find mainly dirt tracks that are nearly impossible to traverse in wet weather.

Parking Information

Parking regulations

Parking regulations
 
Some parts of Fiji are very busy including the capital Suva. There, parking is more regulated than on other parts of the island. Elsewhere you’ll simply need to find a convenient spot to park that doesn’t obstruct others.
 
Paid parking
 
Paid parking is more prevalent in the main towns where you’ll find parking lots. Fiji hasn’t made it to the world of parking meters yet.
 
Enforcement
 
Most of the time you won’t find enforcement of parking in Fiji. The only time you’re likely to get a ticket or be towed is if you obstruct traffic or outstay your time in a car park.  
 
Disabled parking
 
Fiji has no disabled parking scheme but relies simply on drivers being able to find a convenient parking spot themselves or to ask for assistance in attended parking areas. Usually there is no problem as Fijians are renowned for their helpfulness to strangers.

Emergency Information

Emergency Information

Police Police: 000 or 911

Police Fire: 000 or 911

Police Ambulance: 000 or 911

The emergency number in Fiji is 917 for the police and 911 for the fire service and ambulance.

What to do in an emergency

Encountering a mechanical problem with your hire car, you should telephone the number given to you by the hire car company; usually it’s on a sticker on the inside of the windscreen. If you’re driving your own car you should find out the number of an assistance organisation before you travel.
 
If you are involved in an accident you should call the police on 917 and await their arrival. In the meantime, collect details from witnesses and the drivers involved and take photographs of the scene just in case the cars are moved. Ask the police for a copy of their report for your insurers or for the hire car company.
