Test needed for car registration renewal

April 25, 20180 Comments

Environment Public Authority (EPA) Chairman and Managing Director Sheikh Abdullah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah announced that a new method to examine vehicles will be employed that mandates that a vehicle’s exhaust fumes must pass an environmental test to allow renewing its registration with the traffic department.

Sheikh Abdullah said coordination with the Ministry of Interior (MoI) is currently in progress to find a way to examine vehicles and make sure they are environmentally safe prior to renewing their registration. He added that this system will take effect by the beginning of next year.

In addition, he said hanging laundry to dry in the open will be penalized by a KD 500 fine as per the environment law. Sheikh Abdullah also said EPA will fight visual pollution, which he described as a ‘negative phenomenon’, such as using bizarre colors to paint the exterior of houses.
