Govt to impound vehicles with no number plates

In a statement yesterday, Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Dr Joram Gumbo said that vehicles that do not display registration number plates will be impounded.

Said Gumbo:

It has come to the attention of Government that there is an increased number of motor vehicles plying our public roads without displaying registration number plates. This behaviour is contrary to Sections 6 and 10 of the Vehicle Registration and Licensing Act (Chapter 13:14), which stipulates the need for vehicles to be registered and to always display their registration marks and numbers. What is disturbing is that a good number of such motor vehicles have been involved in road traffic accidents, after which their drivers vanish, rendering any further accident reporting procedures and investigations difficult. The cooperation and compliance by all motorists will enable the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to offer a friendlier policing environment. 

The motoring fraternity is also strongly warned that non-compliant vehicles may not be allowed passage at tollgates, the majority of which have now adopted ‘number plate reading technology’.

Any vehicles that are caught in transgression of the law risk being impounded, with the perpetrators being fined or prosecuted. The police, together with our VID officers, shall be on full alert and lookout throughout the country’s national road network to deal with such offenders.
