The traffic police have seized 219 motorcycles without number plates.

The Metropolitan Traffic Police has seized 165 motorcycles with unclear number plates and 54 motorcycles with loose number plates from different places in the Kathmandu Valley.

Chief of the Division, Senior Superintendent of Police Janak Bhattarai said that the traffic police has launched a special operation against unlicensed, unclear, untested, temporary number plates, distorted number plates, and a number plate that is covered motorcycles.

He said that such motorcycles have been brought seized as it is difficult to pick up the number plates and report them to the police in case of an accident.

The department understands that this campaign will play an important role in preventing criminal activities such as violation of traffic rules, fleeing from accidents, and also looting during festivals and crowds. The traffic police have been imposing a fine of Rs 500 to Rs 1,500 on a motorcycle that does not have a number plate as per the prescribed format.
