Kuwait: Proposal to ban expats travel unless they pay traffic fine
The Ministry of Interior is planning to submit a proposal that bans expatriates from leaving the country unless they pay traffic violation fines.
According to the Al-Rai newspaper report, the traffic department will submit this proposal to the Minister of Interior Sheikh Thamer Al Ali for his approval. The proposal also suggests stopping all kinds of services for Kuwaitis and expats who have traffic violations until those violations are paid and transactions are completed.
According to the report, a large number of fines are accumulated, which are estimated at millions of Dinars. There are a large number of violators either imprisoned or have died, also a large number of expats have left the country permanently.
The traffic department is also studying the possibility of informing the violators about their violation by sending text messages via SMS, so that they are informed and know what type of violation and how much is the fine. So that he should pay immediately instead of letting it accumulate.
