KUWAIT CITY, Aug 28: As part of its continuous efforts to implement laws and regulations and preserve the aesthetic appearance in various areas, Kuwait Municipality is currently working on removing any waste or encroachments on state properties, especially abandoned vehicles, reports Al-Anba daily. This is in line with Article 9 of the ministerial Resolution No. 190/2008 which stipulates that, “Vehicles shall not be left neglected on the streets, sidewalks, open areas and public squares”.
Accordingly, a warning sticker is placed on the vehicle in preparation to impound it after 48 hours. The municipality said, “As for the cars displayed for sale, it is prohibited to display vehicles for sale in streets, grounds and public squares. If found, a sticker will be placed and the vehicle will be impounded after 24 hours”.
The municipality affirmed that it has the right to seize and impound vehicles after following all of the aforementioned procedures. It stressed that, “If three months have passed from the date of impoundment and the vehicle owner had not yet recovered the vehicle after paying the fine, the vehicle will be sold through public auction, and the incurred dues are deducted from its value”.
The municipality disclaims responsibility for any damages to the vehicle during the process of lifting, transporting or impounding. It warned that removal of the warning sticker from the vehicle exposes its owner to legal accountability, indicating that the municipality inspector has a copy of each sticker that was used.
