KUWAIT CITY, July 26: According to the Head of the Kuwait Society for Traffic Safety, Bader Al-Matar, the decision of the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Talal Al- Khaled to use the driving license and the vehicle registration on the “My Identity” application in all transactions is considered an important step to detect fraud and forgery, as there has been a terrifying increase in the number of those who obtained driving licenses in Kuwait, reports Al-Rai daily. In a press statement, Al-Matar affirmed that Sheikh Talal Al-Khaled’s decision contributes to limiting the unjustified increase in the number of driving licenses, which has negatively affected the traffic situation in Kuwait globally.

He indicated that the terrifying increase in the number of those who obtained driving licenses, some of which do not commensurate with the size of the need granted to him or those who were not entitled to it, is not hidden from anyone.

Al-Matar highlighted the importance of continuing the campaigns carried out by the Ministry of Interior’s General Traffic Department in line with the ministerial decision to prosecute violators who drive vehicles despite the suspension of their licenses for violating the law, and those who obtained them fraudulently.

He revealed that there are more than one and a half million driving licenses, which are not in line with the population, stressing that the increase in driving licenses for expatriates more than citizens has caused confusion on the road network, which confirms that the application of this procedure is heading towards the right path to limit the imposed increase in the number of unjustified driving licenses and thus reduce traffic congestion.
