The traffic police department is set to crackdown on the expired documents such as vehicle logbooks, driving permits and insurances.
Maj. Gen. Kon John Akot, the Director General for South Sudan traffic police said all the traffic police offices and breaches across the Country are instructed to deploy the officers on the streets to review the vehicles’ licenses in the country.
“I am here by informing all the vehicles owners across the country that starting from Monday (Today) the traffic police department is going to carry an exercise of checking and reviewing all the vehicles licenses,” he said.
“I am calling on all the vehicles owners to have a valid license and if it is expired, the owner have to renew it to avoid getting into problems with traffic police on roads,” He said.
Gen. Akot revealed on Saturday in his office at traffic police headquarter in Juba.
He said on over weekend that the police was directed to make sure that vehicles getting on road should carry valid documents, saying any vehicle with expired or no licenses, the owners must be responsible for it.
He further called on the public to cooperate with the Traffic Police.
“If your vehicle license is not renewed, keep it at home until you renew it, failure to carry valid license with you, we will take necessary steps and we will arrest the vehicle until it is full renewed with some fines included,” Akot added.
Akot also instructed the traffic police officers to make sure that all numberless or temporary number plates’ vehicles owners in the country must get permanent plate number.
