No animals except karozzini allowed during rush hour

Regulations on the use of animals and animal-drawn vehicles have come into force, and Transport Malta is receiving applications for licences for animals or animal-drawn vehicles to be used on the road and licences for their drivers.

No animals or animal-drawn vehicles may be driven on the roads during rush hour, except for karozzini.

Persons owning one or more animal-drawn vehicles and animals used under saddle need to submit application forms so that they can be licensed for the use of the vehicles and/or animals on the road.

Every such application has to be accompanied by an insurance certificate for each animal-drawn vehicle or animal to be licensed, a certificate issued by a veterinarian and an identification document for each animal to be licensed.

Those wishing to drive such animal-drawn vehicles and/or animals also need to apply for a licence.

Transport Malta has prepared guidelines to help applicants through three process. Details can be seen on its website
