Vi­o­la­tion of traf­fic rules

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MUHAMMED ASHAR NAEEM

I would like to in­vite the at­ten­tion of the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned to­ward the com­plete chaos and vi­o­la­tion of traf­fic rules in mar­ket area caus­ing im­mense hard­ship and in­con­ve­nience to com­muters in gen­eral and the res­i­dents of Malir Mo­dle Colony in par­tic­u­lar. Driv­ers and own­ers of large trans­port ve­hi­cle that come to the whole­sale milk mar­ket park their ve­hi­cle in the mid­dle of the roads. To add to the com­mo­tion are fruits venders who place their carts along the thor­ough-fare fur­ther nar­row­ing the roads and block­ing traf­fic at their main junc­tion.

This road junc­tion is an im­por­tant cross­roads as it leads to the per­pet­u­ally busy Kha­joor bazaar and ad­ja­cent ar­eas like the whole­sale medicine mar­ket and Mar­riott road which has many other whole­sale mar­kets. Con­se­quently com­muters who have no al­ter­na­tive ac­cept us­ing this road face nu­mer­ous traf­fic jams. The traf­fic po­lice seems help­less in con­trol­ling the prob­lem. The au­thor­i­ties are, there­fore, re­quested to take ef­fec­tive steps in this re­gard to fa­cil­i­tate the com­muters. — Karachi
