Second-hand car buyers must register ownership

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

Road users who buy second-hand vehicles are to face criminal action if they fail to transfer ownership into their name.

Him Yan, the deputy general commissioner of the National Police, said unregistered vehicle owners would face fines and possible prison terms.
He made the announcement during a meeting on efforts to stop drunk driving.

“In future, people who have not transferred their vehicle ownership will be fined and sent to court,” he said.

“Fines for traffic offenses will be made according to license plate numbers and bills will be delivered to the address registered to the license plate,” he said, adding the penalties will come into force when the government gives the go ahead.

Interior Ministry official Pheng Vannak took to Facebook to criticize Mr. Yan’s announcement.
“Yes, ownership must be transferred for motorbikes and cars bought from others, but there are better ways of making announcements like these that don’t alarm the public,” he wrote.
“Are traffic accidents actually being caused by those who don’t transfer ownership? That would be the only situation where imprisonment is warranted.
“Commune elections are approaching and the comments of the police chief could lead to a lot of ballots for the opposition party.”

In January last year, Prime Minister HE halted plans to enforce vehicle ownership transfers amid public outcry over the complexity and cost of the process. ... crackdown/

Maybe if they made it easier to transfer people would do it? What a bunch of idiots... Who wants to go wait six hours in Prey Leap to transfer documents? No one has the time to do that.
