Oil-rich Kuwait has decided to deport 78 expatriates caught driving without licence under a new law introduced in April, newspapers reported on Sunday.

The 78 drivers were caught in intensified police campaigns on roads between April 23 and May 18, they said, quoting interior ministry undersecretary Abdullah Al Muhanna.

“There are instruction not to tolerate such offences which are considered a serious violation of the law as they endanger human lives…our aim is to end this phenomenon to curb accidents and eliminate road anarchy,” he said.
