July 1, 2022

Muscat – Muscat Municipality has started towing abandoned vehicles parked in commercial and residential areas in the Wilayat of Seeb on Thursday.

A statement issued by the Muscat Municipality said, ‘The Municipality in Seeb carried out a campaign to remove abandoned vehicles from commercial and residential areas in the wilayat after the expiry of time period given to take them away.’

Leaving vehicles unattended for an extended period of time violates the administrative decision No 171/2018 issued on the regulation of neglected vehicles in public places in Muscat governorate.

The statement said, ‘Article 4 states that the municipality can tow away abandoned vehicles from public places away at the expense of the owner 14 days after a warning notice is left on it, without being responsible for any damage caused during the towing process to the yard.’

According to Muscat Municipality, 829 vehicles have been found abandoned in the governorate in 2020.

‘Amerat registered the highest number of abandoned vehicles (686), followed by Bausher (88), Quriyat (54) and Muttrah (1). Most of these vehicles were found in industrial areas,’ the municipality stated.

‘The practice can also cause traffic congestion. Cars left abandoned for a long time also accumulate dust and become likely host for insects and rodents,’ it added.
