15,000 logbooks uncollected – NTSA

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has called on Kenyans who applied for logbooks to collect them from their county offices.

According to NTSA, more than 15,000 motor vehicle logbooks remained uncollected at with Nairobi County recording the highest number of uncollected logbooks at 8,763, followed by Mombasa with 5,998 and 228 and 130 logbooks in Kisumu and Nyeri respectively.

According to the Director General, Mr. Francis Meja, some of the logbooks have been lying on the shelves for more than seven months.

“Applicants should move with speed and pick their documents,” said Meja.

Meja further indicated that the Authority has made efforts to contact the individuals via SMS and through the person’s TIMS account but the customers have allegedly ignoring all their communication.

“We might introduce a fee for delay in picking of logbooks,” posed Meja.

He also revealed that most of the Authority’s services have gone online thus making easier it for the public to access them.

Earlier in the year, NTSA launched an online platform (Transport Integrated Management System (TIMS) for registration and transfer the motor vehicle ownership.

The new system has since reduced the duration taken to get a logbook from 30 days to 3 days.
