45,553 Drivers Booked In One Week & 21 Expatriates To Be Deported From Kuwait
Category: Kuwait Local News

Kuwaiti authorities fined 45,553 drivers in one week for non-compliance with traffic rules. Campaigns launched throughout the country’s six governorates have also netted 21 expatriates who will be deported for driving without licences. The campaigns also led to referring 68 drivers to the traffic court on account of “grave violations” and to impounding 68 vehicles.

“We will continue the campaigns to control traffic on the main and secondary roads to ensure full compliance by the drivers with the laws and regulations to limit violations, protect people’s lives and eliminate all negative phenomena,” a spokesperson for the traffic directorate said, quoted by Kuwaiti site Al Watan on Tuesday.


Kuwait has recently intensified its campaigns to address deficiencies and abuses on the roads which have gained an unwanted notoriety as chaotic and dangerous in the absence of an adequate driving culture and full compliance with rules and regulations. The crackdowns included the non-possession of licences, grave traffic offenses, and the misuse of licences by some of the drivers.
