Passerby finds traffic officer’s car parked in ‘No Parking’ area GTD issues 37,169 citations, seizes 2,406 vehicles

KUWAIT CITY, April 19: At a time when security operatives are expected to serve as role model to maintain law and order, a traffic officer was caught breaking the law in broad daylight when he parked the traffic car in a “No Parking” area for almost 30 minutes on the Fahad Al-Salem Street, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily. A passerby snapped photos of the car with the intention of notifying the Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Major General Abdul-Fattah Al- Ali, as he wanted the traffic chief to know that some officers are lawbreakers.

The citizen decided to send the message via media because he did not have the contact of Major General Abdul-Fattah Al-Ali.
