Deadly wheel­ing

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - UMAR QADEER

In­creas­ing trend of one wheel­ing and bike racing con­tin­ues on busy roads of the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad, cre­at­ing trou­bles for traf­fic as well. A large num­ber of young­sters are in­volved in wheel­ing and bike stunt af­ter re­moval of si­lencers from their bikes, par­tic­u­larly on Ninth Av­enue, Kashmir High­way. With this they not only put their lives at stake but also that of other com­muters.

De­spite ban by Pun­jab gov­ern­ment on one wheel­ing, the thrill lov­ing young­sters miss no op­por­tu­nity to show their stunts on the busy roads. They might be do­ing so to get the at­ten­tion of other peo­ple but this in­deed is a dan­ger­ous game that they are play­ing on the roads. I urge con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to take strict ac­tion against those play­ing this death game and im­pose heavy fine on them. — Islamabad
