Preah Sihanouk cops take cars of nine unlicensed drivers

Police in Preah Sihanouk province confiscated nine cars belonging to Chinese nationals on Monday night, as the drivers didn’t have licences.

Officers from the office of management of weapons and explosives worked with police to set up a roadblock in the provincial capital’s commune 4 to check for illegal weapons.

Police said nearly 78 vehicles were stopped that night and the nine were the only ones without proper documentation.

“However, we don’t have the right to arrest the car owners as they didn’t cause any injuries to others,” said the provincial traffic department chief Prum Pov.
