The court overturns the decision to withdraw vehicles for contravening seat belt and telephone regulations
On Monday, the Administrative Court overturned the Ministry of the Interior’s decision No. 1293 of 2017, which included the addition of items 29 and 27 to article 207 of the Traffic Regulations “on the withdrawal of vehicles for two months if the belt is not tied or spoken by telephone” 500 dinars.
“Since the lawsuit was filed, we have faith in the safety of our client’s position and this decision must be canceled because it is in violation of the law,” said lawyer Khaled Hamoud al-Shammari.
Al-Shammari added: “We hope that the laws will be studied carefully, all of us with firmness and law enforcement, but fairly.”
