Inspection of vehicles …”ESCAPE FOR NOW”

Spread the word
Motorists who have been flooding licensing offices since the police announced there would be a $5,000 fine for failing to inspect their vehicles, can breathe a sigh of relief.

At least for now!

Minister of Work and Transport, Rohan Sinanan, announced on Thursday that a five- month moratorium has been granted on vehicle inspection due to the overcrowding at licensing locations.

He also revealed that T vehicles (3200 kg) can now be inspected at authorized private inspection outlets across the country.

Just last month, the police and licensing officers embarked on an exercise to tackle errant drivers who have failed to inspect their vehicles which are five years and over. As a result, there was a rush at licensing officers and private garages.

On one occasion, a machine broke down and stickers became unavailable. The Minister and the Transport Commissioner said there was no shortage of stickers.

Long lines prevailed across the country prompting Sinanan to announce the moratorium. But insiders at the Licensing Office said there is in fact a shortage of valid stickers and that may well be the reason for the moratorium.

So until December 5, motorists can relax and breathe.
