Slow response to vehicle amnesty
- Categorized in: Mello FM News
There has reportedly been a lukewarm response to the amnesty relating to vehicles impounded by the Transport Authority.
The three-month amnesty which started on April 16, applies to about 1,000 vehicles which have been impounded for more than 30 days.
It would require persons to pay half of the vehicles' valuation fees if the valuation is less that the storage fees.
Petra-Kene Williams Communications Manager at the authority says only 23 of the 1,000 vehicles have been retrieved so far.
Ms Williams says persons whose vehicles have been impounded by the authority should make use of the amnesty which will end within the next two and a half months.
