HARARE -- The Zimbabwe government has launched a blitz targeting unregistered vehicles and warns that such cars risked being impounded.

This follows an increase in the number of vehicles being driven without registration number plates. Apart from making it difficult to identify the vehicles, some of the unregistered cars tend to be used in perpetrating crime.

Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Dr Jorum Gumbo told the media here Monday that a joint law enforcement exercise to flush out unregistered vehicles was already underway.

Vehicles in all categories across the board must comply fully with the requirements of the statutes. In this regard, Government and private use vehicles must be seen on our public roads only if they are registered and are displaying registration number plates and the third number plate, he said.

The motoring fraternity is also being strongly warned that non-compliant vehicles may not be allowed passage at toll-gates, the majority of which have now adopted number plate reading technology.

Dr Gumbo said some illegal car dealers were also non-compliant by keeping unregistered vehicles on their premises for more than 14 days from the date of importation. In terms of the law, only registered car dealers are allowed to keep unregistered vehicles as stock in bond houses for resale to their customers. Vehicles being sold from garages should always be driven on our roads while displaying garage licence plates, he said.
