Proposal to scrap 10-year-old cars rejected

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

The ministerial services committee rejected a proposal from the traffic council that called for banning 10-year-old cars from the road, and preferred to wait because the time is “not suitable”.

According to Kuwait Times report, the ministerial services committee believes implementing this proposal will constitute a financial burden on citizens and expats.

This proposal was one of several presented to the council to deal with the traffic crisis and reduce traffic congestion. Environment Public Authority presented the proposal to make the air cleaner from emissions produced by old cars, adding that it expects cars in Kuwait’s climate to perform well for no more than seven years, because high temperatures do not allow cars to remain in good condition long enough.
