The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has issued a warning to motorists whose license plates do not meet regulations. In a December 7 announcement in the dailies, NTSA warned that according to the Traffic Rules 2016, no one is allowed to sell reflective registration plates or third registration plate licenses without their written consent.
“The Authority’s attention is drawn to the widespread violation of Rule 5(a) of the Traffic (Registration Plates) Rules 2016 as evidenced by the large number of vehicles using registration plates not issued by the Authority,” NTSA wrote.
NTSA further warned motorcycles currently operating using printed papers indicating the registration number as opposed to the registration plate.
“Through this Notice, motor vehicle and motorcycle owners are advised with immediate effect to cease the use of these unauthorized registration plates, failure to which will result in prosecution.”
