Sabhan stores seized vehicles
KUWAIT CITY, March 11: Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic and Operation Affairs at the Ministry of Interior Major General Jamal Al- Sayegh conveyed the instructions and directives of the Minister of Interior Sheikh Thamer Al-Ali, and the Undersecretary of the ministry Lieutenant General Essam Al-Naham, regarding the implementation of extensive campaigns to arrest all the reckless motorists in the country, reports Al-Rai daily.
During these campaigns, reckless motorists who intentionally tamper with the exhaust system of the vehicles to produce annoying noises, especially when they are racing with their cars on the highways, and when they are showing off their recklessness in residential areas, were arrested. In order to accommodate the hundreds of violating vehicles that were seized, the site of the Ministry of Interior’s spring camp in Sabhan area was converted into a seized-vehicle garage more than a week ago.
Major General Al-Sayegh toured the site, and the vehicles and motorcycles that were impounded were examined. He explained that this site has been designated as a garage for impounded vehicles. It can accommodate about 1,200 vehicles, and is the second site of the ministry for this purpose, after the seized-vehicle garage in Shuwaikh area. The site in Sabhan area is equipped with the latest security and surveillance methods, and has surveillance cameras operating around the clock. Security personnel are present at the garage site at various times, with the aim of protecting and guarding citizens and residents’ vehicles and motorcycles from theft and damage.
Major General Al-Sayegh said, “Since the site was sanctioned in a period not exceeding eight days, about 615 vehicles and 58 motorcycles have been impounded. The violations that led to the seizure of vehicles and motor cycles varied between making loud annoying noises, recklessness, speeding, racing and drifting.
