The Ministry of Transport will officially launch the Third Party Liability Insurance Scheme for vehicles in the country in January 2014.
After the launch, government will vigorously enforce the compulsory third party liability insurance to ensure that all vehicles in the country are covered, Assistant Director for Public Affairs at the ministry, Mr. Lemuel O. Kleeme told the Liberia News Agency (LINA) Wednesday.
Kleeme said the insurance sector and the ministry are working out modalities to ensure that the scheme achieves its intended goals.
He recounted that during the administration of the late President Samuel K. Doe, third party liability insurance policy for vehicles was mandatory, making the exercise successful.
Meanwhile, Mr. Kleeme has disclosed that a technical committee comprising the Liberia National Police and Transport Ministry has been set up to jointly register non-commercial motorcycles, and that discussions are ongoing for the exercise to commence.
