(LINA) - The Ministry of Transport (MOT) in collaboration with the Liberia National Police (LNP) has begun inspection of vehicles in the country to ensure compliance with the ministry’s policy on vehicle registration and insurance.
The inspection process, which started on Tuesday in Monrovia, is intended to compel compliance with MOT regulation as well as prevent the loss of essential revenue by government.
In an interview with the Liberia News Agency on Tuesday, Deputy MOT Public Affairs Director Lemuel O. Kleeme said the joint enforcement exercise will enable the MOT to identify vehicles that are operating without proper documentation as well as the 2015 insurance stickers.
According to Kleeme, the validation of insurance stickers should be regularized annually to guarantee that vehicles are operating legally, adding, “Registration should be done every year as per the last registration date of your vehicle.”
He noted that vehicle operators are permitted to do business with any of the insurance companies licensed by the government and refuted reports that the MOT is in the business of pin-pointing a specific insurance company.
He said the inspection process is expected to continue for the next three weeks or more so that the MOT can carry out its mandate efficiently.
