MANDALAY DIVISION – According to locals, the junta has announced that drivers and motorcyclists in Mandalay must bring their registration cards and driving licenses with them. They are required to bring the national registration card (NRC) together with the vehicle license and the driving license anytime they drive.
“It doesn’t make sense at all. There is no such traffic law that prohibits driving without an NRC,” said a Mandalay resident.
In addition, it is reported that the junta also announced two men cannot ride on the same motorbike and must wear seatbelts when driving cars.
Similarly, the same public announcements were yelled out from cars (with sound reinforcement systems) in Pyin-Oo-Lwin, according to locals.
