A joint campaign has been launched to remove abandoned vehicles at Al Daayen municipality. Jointly launched by the Al Daayen Municipality and the Committee for Removal of Abandoned Vehicles, the campaign, in its fourth phase, is implemented in order to ensure environmental protection and improve the aesthetic appeal of the localities.

According to a statement by the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME), the campaign launch was attended by committee members Mohamed Faraj al-Kubaisi (assistant director, Cleaning Department), Marzouq Mubarak al-Masifari (assistant director, Department of Mechanical Equipment), Lt Yusef Fahd al-Ali (General Traffic and Patrols Department), and Hamad Sultan al-Shahwani (head, Department of General supervision, Doha Municipality) along with officials from various departments.

Al-Kubaisi said that the phenomenon of abandoning vehicles will be confronted by intensifying such campaigns, awareness drives and alerting car owners. Al-Masifari said that the campaign to remove abandoned cars was launched last July in Doha Municipality, followed by Al Rayyan, Al Khor and Al Thakira and now has reached Al Daayen Municipality.

He explained a total of 2,500 vehicles have been so far removed since the campaign launch in July while a total of 65,000 vehicles were removed this year in all municipalities.

Al-Ali said that the Traffic Department plays an important role in the campaign by working to regulate traffic during the removal process in addition to helping lift abandoned cars that cause hindrances for the development of the region.

Al-Shahwani said the committee will intensify its efforts as required to remove all abandoned vehicles and equipment from across the country in co-ordination with the competent authorities.

The committee members urged the owners of violating vehicles to quickly address their situation to avoid facing any legal procedures. They also asked the public to avoid using pavements and public parking lots to leave behind their vehicles, which spoil the aesthetic appeal of the place.
