NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 2 – The National Transport and Safety Authority has put off indefinitely the implementation of phase two of the issuance of the third identifier sticker that was to kick off beginning of October.
The vehicle identifier sticker, which shows the name of the owner, chassis number and the make of the car, kicked off in July with new vehicle registrations.
NTSA has clarified that contrary to reports, the October 1st deadline did not require all vehicles to have the identifier sticker.
The Director-General of the Authority Francis Meja says that from 2018, NTSA will work with insurance firms to implement universal compliance by requiring motorists to acquire the identifier sticker upon insurance renewal.
“Going forward, public announcements on implementation (of phase two) will be made accordingly. Note that the payment is one off (sh700).”
