Yangon govt to take legal actions against illegal operation of vehicles

Yangon Region government will take legal actions against illegal operation of the vehicles on YBS routes with more effective laws, according to the region’s Minister for Electricity, Industry, Transport and Communication Daw Nilar Kyaw.
MP U Aung Phone Kyaw San Oo of Htantabin Township Constituency 1 asked if Yangon regional government has a plan to take legal action against the outside illegal vehicles operating in Yangon YBS bus routes day and night. He argued how the Yangon local government would take action against those vehicles.
He raised this question during the fourth-day session of the Second Yangon Regional Hluttaw’s 12th regular meeting held on 31 August.
Minister Daw Nilar Kyaw responded to the question saying that YBS system is being operated under Yangon region public transport sector to be able to establish a better public transport system. YBS buses have also been added to meet the needs of the public. At present, some 102 bus lines including shuttle bus lines are being operated in Yangon region. However, the action is being taken against those vehicles, which are illegally operating along YBS bus routes in some townships.
Regarding taking of an action, the traffic police seized about 154 vehicles in 2018 and took legal action against 148 cars in 2019.
Those undisciplined, unregistered, illegal vehicles have legal action taken under Section 65 of the 2015 Motor Vehicle Law, under which a fine of less than K30,000 is imposed. Now, the government has planned to take action against those disobedient vehicles under the respective law, she noted. (Translated by Hay Mar)
