Following public concern over a video depicting a driver engaging in reckless and dangerous maneuvers, the Ministry has taken action. The vehicle in question has been impounded, with the driver remaining unidentified. Upon inspection by the Technical Inspection Department, it was determined that the vehicle had been tampered with. Legal proceedings are underway.

The Ministry underscores that vehicles bearing foreign license plates, whose true ownership cannot be ascertained and lack corresponding database records, fall under Article 876 of the Civil Code. This designates them as permissible movable property abandoned by their owners, thus becoming state property subject to disposal at the state’s discretion.

Emphasizing a zero-tolerance policy toward reckless behavior on the roads, the Ministry asserts its commitment to enforcing the law to safeguard the well-being of all road users.
