Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi ratified amendments to the new traffic law, which were approved by the House of Representatives in February.

The ratification decree was published in the official gazette on Monday.

The amendments impose new annual fees on vehicle licensing.

A report prepared by parliament’s transport committee said the amendments aim to support “smart transport systems,” which are necessary to reduce car accidents, improve road quality, and cut fuel consumption and pollution.

The fees will cover all private, public, and diplomatic vehicles and will depend on engine size.
