Heavy Traf­fic Tim­ings

Enterprise - - Letters -

In Dubai, be­tween 6am and 8am — the peak hours of the school com­mute — heavy ve­hi­cles are strictly for­bid­den to be on the roads so that chil­dren may not be late for schools. Driv­ers caught in vi­o­la­tion of the rule are fined and, in ad­di­tion to that, ve­hi­cles are seized.

Some­thing like this is com­pletely un­heard of in Pak­istan. I feel very sorry when I see school vans be­ing kept wait­ing by se­cu­rity guards of pri­vate fac­to­ries so that huge trucks and fac­tory ve­hi­cles can pass by with ease. Apart from this, many peo­ple park their ve­hi­cles where there is a ‘No Park­ing’ sign, mak­ing mat­ters all the worse for par­ents who are try­ing to drive their chil­dren to school.
