Bru­tal use of pres­sure horns

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - SANA SANAULLAH

I would like to draw the at­ten­tion of trans­port au­thor­i­ties as well as law en­force­ment agen­cies to­wards noise pol­lu­tion, brought about by the bru­tal use of pres­sure horns. Although it is strictly pro­hib­ited near hos­pi­tals, res­i­den­tial ar­eas, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions yet for bus and truck driv­ers it ap­pear as a nor­mal ac­tiv­ity. They break the law, over­look the rule and mas­sively use pres­sure horns.

The smoke emit­ting ve­hi­cles make lib­eral use of pres­sure horns, which cre­ates dan­ger­ous level of noise pol­lu­tion. Law en­force­ment agen­cies and traf­fic po­lice seems help­less and in­dif­fer­ent to all these hap­pen­ings. The po­lice only run af­ter them to en­quire about their li­cense and other doc­u­ments. It is need of hour that au­thor­i­ties con­cerned should take im­me­di­ate steps to curb such bru­tal prac­tice. — Via email
