FULL TEXT: Police Update On Unregistered, Unlicensed And Plateless Vehicles

National police spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi has issued an update on the operation targeting plateless, unregistered, and unlicensed vehicles. He said over 5 800 motorists have been accounted for since the launch of the ongoing operation. Pindula News presents Nyathi’s statement:

POLICE UPDATE ON UNREGISTERED AND PLATELESS VEHICLES

Reference is made to the ongoing Police Operation on unregistered and plateless vehicles in terms of the Vehicle Registration and Licensing Act, Chapter 13:14.

Since the onset of the operation on 15th January 2022, a total of 5841 motorists have been accounted for. The Zimbabwe Republic Police applauds the public for the cooperation which has been received by officers throughout the country in enforcing the law and bringing sanity on the country’s roads.

The public is reminded that the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development has made it clear that there are adequate stocks of number plates in the country and no vehicle should be on the road without number plates.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police, therefore, reiterates that all vehicles not displaying permanent number plates should be parked whilst awaiting the necessary registration process. It is a fact that Police investigations have shown that vehicles with no registration plates are being used to commit robbery, murder, rape, kidnapping, Unlawful Entry as well as hit and run road traffic accidents in the country.

The public is also strongly urged to change ownership of vehicles they purchase from local people within 14 days as prescribed, as failure to do so is an offense. It becomes difficult for Police to identify current owners of vehicles through number plates when ownership of a particular vehicle is not up to date.

Above all, some of the vehicles are not insured in terms of the Road Traffic Act Chapter 13:11 which poses a danger to the Government’s road safety efforts and security of travellers.

The Police urges the public to report any vehicle which is moving on the roads with no registration plates to any nearest Police Station or PGHQ Complaints Desk on (0242) 703631, Harare Operations on (242) 748836, Bulawayo Operations on 0292 885479 or PGHQ WhatsApp 0712 800197.
