According to officials there are more than 1.2 million cars in Kuwait, and that’s way too much for a country this small. Their solution is to limit cars owned per resident. Each Kuwaiti gets up to 2 cars and each expat will get one car. An additional car over your limit will cost you KD 100. I still don’t know if that’s a one time fee or not.
Officials also mentioned this isn’t their only plan, “there are several short-term and long-term plans and strategies as well”. I guess most Kuwaitis wouldn’t care, if you can afford three cars, you can afford a KD 100 fee. I really do hope this cuts down on traffic, although I doubt it. [Source]
