The South Sudan National Police Service (SSNPS) yesterday launched an operation to crack down on and impound vehicles with tinted windows, without number plates, invalid logbooks, and those with concealed number plates.
Gen. Daniel Justin, the SSNPS spokesman told Radio Tamazuj in an interview yesterday, “We have launched an operation to curb on vehicles with tinted windows, no number plates, and those with concealed number plates. So the police and other organized forces are on the road to ensure that those who are breaking these laws are brought to book.”
According to Gen. Justin, the order banning vehicles with tinted windows was passed by the council of ministers a long time ago.
“We have been enforcing it but now many people, including criminals, seem to be contravening it. So we have had to launch a new operation to crack down on it and to sensitize drivers about it,” Gen. Justin said.
“A lot of people, especially drivers of small cars like Premios and Harriers, have tinted the windows on their vehicles. You find these small tinted cars moving at night without number plates and they are at times used by criminals. That is why we came up with this security operation,” Gen. Justin added.
“We have warned the public many times in the past that tinted vehicles are banned and illegal and this is a government order by the council of ministers and we are enforcing it,” he stressed.
The police mouthpiece said this operation against those driving vehicles with tinted windows, without or with number plates, and those with only one number plate is going to be continuous.
“Every driver should move with a valid log book, a valid driving permit, and ensure that your vehicle has number plates,” he cautioned.
