Traffic department urge govt to ban cars older than 10 years

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Traffic department made a recommendation to the government to ban vehicles older than 10 years from the roads; a recommendation which has been seconded by the Environment Public Authority with the aim of resolving traffic congestion.

According to local daily Kuwait Times, EPA believes that banning such vehicles will also limit pollution and carbon and other hazardous emissions.

A recommendation to this effect was made a few years ago but was not discussed by the Cabinet. The sources explained that putting this recommendation into practice will not be an easy task for various reasons, such as a possible 50 percent drop in the spare parts business, but argued that such a justification is not warranted because even new vehicles might need spare parts after a year of use.

First they have to remove all the old buses which were used by the companies to transport employees ,which emit endless pollution with black smoke,when standing at signal or in a traffic jam these buses emit black smoke which reminds me indian traffic where when we leave fresh from home but reaches with full of polluted and dark face mask on our face..
So please stop old buses and first implement this 10 years law for heavy vehicles if the pollution is reduced then come down for small vehicles and when you take this decission you need to take care that there should be trade in with the vehicle showroom for buying new vehicles.
