KIGALI - THE Traffic Police has given an ultimatum of September 30 for all drivers to have acquired the new electronic driving license before punitive measures are imposed.
This was announced yesterday by the head of the Traffic Police, Chief Supt. Vincent Sano, in an Interview with The New Times.
“We are sending all the names of those who have not picked their licenses to all districts, publish them on our website and probably through papers, and then we shall begin confiscating old licenses,” he said.
He added that after the deadline, everyone with an old driving license will be handled as unlicensed and the same punitive measures will be applied.
He added that the exempted persons are those who are in the process of changing their names, especially women who got married and want to use their husbands’ names.
Sano noted that over 6,200 licenses have not been collected by their respective owners, and there have not been any viable reason why they do not collect them.
