General Security police can’t issue traffic tickets

The Interior Ministry’s Assistant Undersecretary for General Security Lt Gen Faisal AlNawaf issued a decision to take back traffic ticket books from all non-commissioned officers and policemen of the sector and hand them to the traffic department.

According to local report, the decision was taken after an increasing number of complaints from citizens and expats against non-commissioned officers and policemen of the supervisory and inspection department at the traffic violations investigation department, accusing them of maliciousness and abuse of authority in issuing traffic tickets.

The sources said the general security policemen’s job does not include issuing traffic tickets, and some of them are not fully aware of the traffic violations law.

Although late but at least correct decision taken by the Interior Ministry’s Assistant Undersecretary for General Security Lt Gen Faisal AlNawaf - many thanks for him. Non-Commissioned Officers and Policemen were target mostly expatriates and since they don''t know Arabic language without listening anything from them were issuing traffic tickets to them. They should listen expatriates side also before issuing traffic tickets. This is not our fault that we don''t know Arabic too much but at least policeman should know English. See how nice and good Bahrain, Dubai Policeman.

This is good decision. Who ever violates the law, should be penalized but fairly.
