A total of 39 abandoned cars parked in public areas have been removed over the past 2 weeks, the Southern Municipality revealed.
It is part of a campaign targeting car owners who had been notified of their violations but failed to remove their vehicles or report to the municipality to rectify the situation.
The municipality said that they received complaints from citizens and residents about abandoned cars near in residential areas.
The ministry based this on Article (7) of Law No. (10) to notify the owners of these abandoned vehicles to remove them within 48 hours. They were warned to remove the cars within the stipulated grace period.
According to the directives of the minister and the undersecretary for municipal affairs, this campaign is part of a series of campaigns by the municipality to control violations of road occupations that cause damage to the environment and the urban and aesthetic nature of the areas.
