Dramatic drop in traffic violations

Sunday, November 12, 2017

New traffic regulations have helped reduce the number of no-parking violations from an average of 4,000 a day to 150, the Interior Ministry’s General Traffic Department said yesterday.

Traffic police started two weeks ago to impound for two months a vehicle whose driver parks in no parking zones, is caught driving while using a mobile phone, in case the driver or passenger are not fastening the seatbelt while the car is moving, or in case a motorcyclist is caught driving without wearing a helmet.

These new measures have helped dramatically drop the number of violations committed by motorists, Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major General Fahad Al-Shuwayie said

It is not correct , still 99.9% of citizens are not wearing seat belt , and mostly they only use mobile phones while driving ( especially Kuwaiti ladies) . Then how it can say " These new measures have helped dramatically drop the number of violations committed by motorists" .

Fear of punishment has reused the number of violations. That is definitely appreciable. Hope the number of accident reduce and save life in the coming days.
