Delta State Traffic Management Authority (DESTMA) will commence the impounding of vehicles without number plates plying the streets and highways in the State.
A statement released from the office of DESTMA, stated that owners of vehicles and motorists without vehicle number plates on the streets and highways in Delta State and whose number plates were confiscated by DESTMA, for Traffic offences, would be impounded starting from Friday September 1, 2017.
The statement also stated that all unauthorized motorists with covered number plates are reminded of a government order, which restricts members of the public from covering their Registration Number Plates, with the exception of Heads of the Executive, Legislature and the Judiciary.
Also, that all defaulting motorists without their number plates should pay their penalties to the State IGR account and collect their Number Plates, saying that the call to uncover Number Plates is necessary as the action would assist to check the current wave of social vices such as kidnapping, gangsterism, robbery amongst other vices.
All unauthorized motorists who find it trendy to cover their Number Plates and those without Number plates are advised to immediately desist from such, as failure to comply with government order will attract sanctions as provided by the law establishing DESTMA.
