KUWAIT CITY, Oct 10: Instructions have been issued to impose strict restrictions on people who operate taxis illegally at the Kuwait International Airport. According to security sources, the instructions stipulate that any expatriate who is found operating a taxi from the airport should be deported. If he is a Bedouin resident, his car should be impounded for two months, and he should be detained by the traffic police for 48 hours for committing this serious violation.

The sources highlighted the numerous complaints received by the General Traffic Department from retired citizens who operate airport taxis, claiming that there are people transporting passengers in an irregular and illegal manner.

The sources said instructions were issued to traffic and investigation officers to intensify work around the clock, take the necessary measures to eliminate violators of traffic laws and rules, and allow passengers to be transported from the airport via official airport taxis only. They said traffic campaigns will be implemented on a daily basis by detectives and security personnel, and distributed in all parts of the Kuwait International Airport buildings.
