From now on, the inspection services of urban districts in the municipality of Luanda may only remove vehicles, on public roads, in cases of urgency and public interest.

According to a note from CACL, which reached Angop, it is advisable to notify the offender, by means of a notice placed on the car or any other means of transgression, so that the voluntary removal can take place within 48 hours.

CACL said that the administrations of the urban districts of Luanda municipality, in the case of vehicles or other means charged with administrative transgression, should give priority to the means of immobilisation, through the use of clamps.

The towing of vehicles will only take place after 48 hours have elapsed since the notice of voluntary withdrawal or if, blocked, the transgressor does not pay the respective fine.

The Administrative Transgressions Act, approved on 19 January 2011, provides for the punishment of legal and individual persons who carry out any action that disturbs public order, the safety of persons and property, public health and others.
