KUWAIT CITY, Oct 27: The General Traffic Department (GTD) organized traffic campaigns in all governorates of the country to ensure vehicles meet the security and durability, reports Al-Jarida daily. The daily added, the campaigns were carried out simultaneous under the supervision of the Technical Testing Department. During the campaign the GTD personnel issued 1,940 traffic citations and arrested one minor and referred him to Juvenile Prosecution. He was caught for driving without a license. The director of the Technical Testing Department at the GTD, Colonel Misha’al Al-Suwaihi, said the main objective is not to issue citations and impound vehicles but to instill in the minds of motorists the need to adhere to security and durability conditions of vehicles to prevent traffic accidents.
He pointed out that the technical inspection engineers, during the security campaigns, noticed the presence of a large number of motorists driving without renewing their insurance documents which means they have not taken their vehicles for technical testing over a long period of time. He added, all such vehicles have been impounded and will be allowed to ply the roads only after they are declared safe and secure.
