The Internal Security Forces (Lekhwaya) in association with the Traffic Department and Technical Inspection has intensified a crackdown on violators of traffic and sponsorship laws as well as traffic safety standards. Lieutenant Mohamed Hamad al-Marri from the internal security forces said that campaign checked 17 vehicles in violation of the traffic standards and specifications, and issued 20 traffic violations last Tuesday on the Salwa Road. “In addition to the enforcement of all the traffic rules, we are also checking those who violating the law regulating the entry and stay of expatriates in the country and referring them to the concerned authorities,” Lieutenant al-Marri said. The campaign also checked one person violating the sponsorship law. Al-Marri added that the campaign is usually being intensified during the summer months, which he said, does not witness heavy traffic jams. “On conducting the surprise check, we avoid the rush hours so that we do not cause traffic congestion on roads,” he said. Sergeant Jamal al-Ajami from the Traffic Department said the campaign also checked expatriate motorists driving trucks with expired driving licences as well as trailers which are violating the safety and security requirements. “The campaign aimed to ensure traffic safety on roads and maintain peoples’ lives and properties,” he added. Note: ILQ mentioned that phase 5 of the traffic authorities rules would kick in 8 months ago. We've been working hard to provide suggestions to the Traffic Authority.
