Drifters block road: An unknown individual closed the main road opposite Al-Naeem area to perform stunts with his car, which resulted in heavy traffic congestion. He allowed people to pass only after the wheels of his vehicle were punctured. Also, a number of youths gather every day at night on Sulaibiya Road to race and drive recklessly which endangers not only their lives but also the lives of other road users. Many complainants lamented the absence of traffic officers to follow up these youths and stop them. In Saad Al-Abdullah area, youths driving their cars on two wheels and with their bodies out of the cars have become a common sight. This represents a danger to the other road users. Through this newspaper as well as through social media, many Kuwaiti citizens requested the concerned authorities to take strict actions against such drivers.
