Car rental companies in Riyadh, Dammam, Al-Khobar, and Jeddah were fined more than 3 million Saudi Arabian Riyals for committing at least 2,000 violations in October and the first two weeks of November, according to a report by Saudi Gazette.
A committee from the Public Transport Authority made inspection tours of the offices in the four Saudi cities to ensure they were following the rules. The committee found several violations including operating without proper licenses or with expired ones, according to the report.
Some offices didn’t have the rental contract placed in a clear place for the customers to see, says the report. Other offices were parking their cars in unlicensed places and using cars, which were not insured.
The Public Transport Authority asked all companies and individuals in the transport sector to obey the rules to avoid punishments and fines, says the report.
