Police will on Friday launch an operation targeting unregistered and unlicensed vehicles, amid indications that such vehicles are being used to commit “heinous crimes”.
In a statement on Thursday, police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Blessmore Chishaka, said the Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) is deeply concerned with the deliberate disregard of road traffic regulations by drivers of unregistered and plate-less vehicles.
“Unregistered and plate-less vehicles are also being used to commit crimes such as robberies, murder, kidnapping, rape and other heinous crimes.
“In order to tame this wanton disregard of traffic laws and the continued commission of crimes by drivers and criminals who use unregistered and plate-less vehicles, the Zimbabwe Republic Police will escalate operations to bring this scourge to an end,” he said.
“In this regard, all vehicles that do not display either standard number plates or Temporary Identification Cards (TICs) will be impounded and processed through referral to courts and payment of fines,” Chief Superintendent Chishaka said.
Police also urged members of the public to avoid boarding unregistered vehicles.
