KUWAIT CITY, June 3: According to informed sources, the recently launched process of destruction or crushing of cars by the Ministry of Interior is a legal procedure that is implemented when the cars are either too old, or neglected, or used for showing off and driving recklessly, or belong to owners who are unknown, reports Al-Qabas daily. They explained that the details and license plate numbers of the wrecked vehicles are deleted. Some of these cars had been taken by traffic authorities and left unclaimed for over a year, despite being advertised in the official gazette.

According to the traffic regulations, if a vehicle remains unclaimed for a year after being seized, it becomes public property. Therefore, these impounded cars are auctioned off as scrap, and the proceeds are referred to the State Treasury. The source affirmed that it is crucial to crush or destroy these cars primarily for security purposes, rather than just traffic concerns, adding that the ministry plans to include the car crushing charges in the upcoming amendment to the pertinent law with the aim of reducing and discouraging reckless drivers who create excessive noise, endanger others’ lives, and disrupt traffic.
