Deportation for expatriates repeating traffic violations

Thursday, November 23, 2017

Director of the General Public Relations and Security Media Department Brigadier Adel Al-Hashash disclosed that the ministry will deport any expatriate who repeats the violation of driving without seat belt and use mobile by hand while driving.

Recently, the authorities started impounding the vehicles for a period of two months for not wearing seat belts or using mobile while driving. Al-Hashash pointed out that an expatriate who repeats the violation of not using safety belt and uses mobile phone while driving will be sent packing.

The traffic law permits impounding of vehicle, while existing articles give the Minister of Interior the right to deport those who violate general order and laws of the country. He called on the public to adhere to traffic rules and cooperate with the traffic officers for the safety of motorists and other road users.

Dear Expat

noted and irrespective of religion , one be must on the right path and follow the same. no way there can be two laws for the same offence. we expats did not come to steal here. we are here for work and must be respected.

no doubt , ppl like me do pray for the betterment of Kuwait as the Almighty has written our Rizq in Kuwait and it does not mean I must not speak my mind.

Please beware before commenting on the nationals and moreover the influential nationals. These people are very tolerant and are allowing expats to live a decent lives in their country. In India we don't like even the other states people to live in our states. These nationals are allowing us a taxfree,hassle free, politics free, goondaism free, lives in here.

Law is the same for every one. Expats are here with a purpose of making money and returning to their countries after they have achieved their goal, during this period expats should respect and abide by the laws of the host country and not question the state of authority. Breaking the law means causing nuisance and if every expat starts breaking the rules it would create a chaotic situation.for people at large. The traffic department at the most can punish a expat by deporting him whereas how can the same punishment be implement on a Kuwaiti ? can he be deported from his own country? where should be go ? Hence the interior ministry has devised other laws for its citizens which one can read in Arabic newspapers which are not applicable to foreigners living in Kuwait.

Dear General PR,
Please if you have the time please go to all the ring road in the morning and see the roads are now quite empty -Yes a minor traffic morning hours.
This is becoz of many vehicles are seized nor still i tell many expats have now already sold their cars and many travel on a 50 thousand dinar bus peaceful - Surely if trains and mono rail is done --- it will be more peaceful and enjoyable .
Remember a little counselling is required --please note now since expats are less this law should be henceforth followed also for all the locals kuwaiti citizen --for which as of today they still care a damm.. Today i was shocked and i seen besides the law states no usage of mobile and no eating --- but please stop driver smoking the Hookah and that too left leg up and driving in his own world with his companion ... I wish i could snapshot and upload the same ... Keep up the good spirit and note if the Law is done it has to be obeyed to all .
Remember One hand do not clap but required both hand to clap likewise in same order everyone has to obey the LAW :- Just Think about it ....

how absurd and ridiculous.. deportation for not wearing seat belts and using mobile phones.. and its not mentioned how many repetations to get deported, which means u can get deported the second time also.. So any policeman can frame a case against any expat and get them deported, as they don't need any proof to put a case against expats..
Deportation for not wearing seat belts
deportation for using mobile phones while driving
deportation for jumping red signal ( rule of recent past)
deportation if expats fight - doesn't apply to Kuwaitis even if they start the fight
deportation for practicing religion privately - 12 Indians were caught for conducting a private prayer gathering and deported despite requests and recommendations from indian embassy
deportaion for cutting grass - 2 expats were caught by environmental police for cutting grass as ordered by their Kuwaiti for their farm animals and were deported..
deportation for runaway maids - no question of why such huge number of maids are running away from their employers.. domestic workers are considered worst than slaves and their rights are not considered..
deportation for working outside their residency..
deportation for visa holders if their company is black listed..
and even after all this, visa is still open and are recruiting new expats every day...

its about time to make a mass appeal to the United Nations as almost every rule made ONLY for expats are total violation of human rights..

Dear EXPAT Muslim - if Director want to deport Kuwaities, how can they do that ? Where they can be deported to ?

Posted on Wednesday, November 22, 2017

@EXPAT Muslim,

Citizens are exempted from every kind of punishments mainly with respect to traffic. They can hit your car, they can park on the middle of the road, they can block the pathway, they can drive without a license, without car permit, they can talk over the phone or chat while driving and hit anyone(except citizen).

Of course, there are many responsible citizens who respect the country law more than expatriates and honest police officers too. But their numbers may be very less.

BTW..... we(expatriates) should be cautious when we are in foreign country. We came here knowing their discrimination and practice, blaming now is not worthy.....but as humans we express our concerns without any use.

dear Director

what about the level of punishment for those repeating the offences with a nationality called Kuwait???? no punishment .
respected Sir ,
your name suggest you are a Muslim and in Islam all are one then why discrimate amongst people.
why is punishment announced for expats only? Kuwaitis do not break the laws or they are not meant to be punished.???
