Travel ban to be imposed for non-payment of traffic fines

Effective October 2013, both expatriates and national residents who are yet to pay traffic fines would be banned from travelling, according to latest rule by Traffic Department.

Defaulters will lose their right to all operations by the Interior Ministry, including license renewal and residence permits. The Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic, Abdul Fattah Al Aali said.

Various departments of the Ministry have entered into an accord, and the measures will be implemented in October.

The official has been conducting huge campaign to ensure compliance with law. The state was able to recover 38million dinars out of the 41 million dinars that the companies and establishments owed in the form of fines and penalties.

The expatriates summoned will have to come to the traffic directorate and hand over their licenses, assuring them that there would be “no questions asked”, he said. Those who fail to come will face forgery charges and will be deported, the official said.
