Traffic is getting unbearable in Kuwait. When i came 9 years ago it was good to drive on kuwait Tom dick n harry have licence. One way to reduce traffic problem is when people com to renew driving licence the department should check if they fullfil the new criteria to renew licence salary criteria, education criteria etc if they dont meet it please dont renew the licence. Forget the old licence issue new ones. That way more than half the vehicles will b out of roads. Then increase road tax and vehicle insurance.Decrease bus, taxi fares. This is a sure way to reduce the road traffic.

Increasing the fine amount will not solve the traffic problem. Applying the law honestly is needed. (No wasta shall work)

Mostly the locals and drivers of taxis r on mobiles.

Let these rules truly be effective in all respects. Even now we are observing drivers blatantly using mobiles while driving. Secondly noise pollution by motor bikes is on the increase especially on sea side roads. They drive recklessely and pay no heed to the noise their bikes make. Possibly this aspect should also be considered as one in the list of penalties.

Dear Mr. Mahmoud Al Dosari, MOI
Yes I agree with you for jumping signals and parking in handicapped parking you increase fines. but let me tell you Sir, the speed limit you mentioned 180 kms should be reduced to 120 kms ... that means normally busy roadway like Fahaheel express highway and all ring road speed limit should be just brought down to 80 to 100 / last 120 kms maximum thats all .. and you say about this 180 kms it should be in interior far off places after fahaheel , Jahra or Abdally ...
Please understand by reducing the speed everything will be at its place .. Ah yes the usage of mobile phones while driving there are many still using while driving .. please implement double heavy fines or confiscate the licence completely ... as mentally the driver is not concentrating on the wheels ---and unnecessary accident takes place . Law should be implemented for all expats and Kuwait citizens...
There is a saying --- " You cannot do 2 jobs at one time ....It is logic to think to do one job at one time '''' Please think about this ....carefully .
