Coalition Provisional Authority


Baghdad, Iraq?May 30, 2004 ? Iraq?s Minister of Interior, Samir Shakir Mahmood Sumaida?ie has announced recently-completed revisions to Iraq?s National Traffic Code.

The revised Code includes provisions requiring operator licenses as well as vehicle registration, licensing and safety inspections.

The Code stipulates that fines for violations of the Code be paid directly to an accounts officer at the police sector headquarters.

?Citizens often complain to me about the traffic conditions in Iraq ? especially in Baghdad,? said Minister Sumaida?ie. ?This revised Code will go a long way toward improving traffic and, more importantly, the safety of Iraqi drivers and pedestrians.?

Vehicle licensing and inspection stations will be established at various traffic police offices throughout Iraq. The Ministry of Interior will notify Iraqi vehicle owners of the time and place of their vehicle inspection and registration.

The provisions of the Code will be enforced by Iraq?s traffic police officers. Those vehicle owners and/or drivers who fail to comply with the Code are subject to punishment in Iraqi courts.

The revisions, implemented by CPA Order Number 86, were requested by Baghdad?s Director General for Traffic. The revisions are the first since 1972.
