Police will arrest and impound vehicles plying the streets with fake license plates and others without license plates, Deputy Police Director for Operation, Col. Abraham Kromah disclosed yesterday.
"The Director has expressed a strong rejection of people going with impunity thinking that they can just ply the streets without putting license plates on their cars," Director Kromah said Monday on a local radio station.
Speaking further, he said those found in the act should either desist or their vehicles will be impounded.
"Those that are carrying fake license plates on their cars. The Director has instructed that we ensure that those without license plates and those that are carrying fake license plates like the government vehicles we will impound their vehicles," he added.
Several vehicles and motorbikes plying the streets without genuine plates have not only been accused of influencing crimes but also speeding away from crime scenes.
Police in Monrovia recently detained one of former president Charles Taylor's sisters for about 25 minutes for driving a car without a license plate, demonstrating that no one is above the law.
The incident occurred on Randall Street between the intersections of Broad and Carey Streets.
