Public outrage as hundreds of cars seized in new traffic law

Posted on : Thursday 16th of November 2017

KUWAIT CITY : Implementation of the decision taken by the Ministry of Interior to include three traffic violations in the list of regulations that sanction impounding of vehicles has started.

The three violations include: using mobile phone while driving, parking on pavements and pedestrian crossings, and driving without seat belt.

On the first day of its implementation, the decision has sparked widespread public and political anger — especially on social media, due to its randomness, indiscretion and improper implementation strategy.

Meanwhile, on the field yesterday, the General Traffic Department impounded 490 vehicles but the actual number is believed to be 880, indicating 149 vehicles impounded in Ahmadi Governorate, 216 in the Capital, 178 in Hawalli, 115 in Farwaniya, 158 in Jahra, and 64 in Mubarak Al-Kabeer governorate.

Implementation of the decision has caused a case of divorce as indicated by Attorney Hawra Al-Habeeb in a statement on her Twitter account saying her client called to file for divorce, because his vehicle was impounded while arguing with his wife on the phone.
