Crackdown on Kuwaitis driving cars with Gulf number plates – One month grace period

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 3, (KUNA): All Kuwaiti motorists who own and drive cars with license plates from Gulf countries have one month during which they must turn in these license plates to be replaced by Kuwaiti ones, said a Ministry of Interior official on Saturday.

There are Kuwaiti motorists who drive cars with license plates from Gulf countries who use them to break serious traffic rules, thinking erroneously that the arm of the law will not reach them because they are driving cars with foreign license plates, said the ministry assistant undersecretary for traffic affairs Maj Gen Abdullah Al-Muhanna in a press statement. He said some of the traffic infractions they commit are very serious such as running the red light and driving with outrageous speed.

The worst number of traffic violations a Kuwaiti motorist committed driving a car with Gulf license plates topped 1,645, drawing fines of KD 57,575, said a ministry official.
