Reck­less driv­ing

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - AYESHA AZIZ

I would like to draw the at­ten­tion of Traf­fic Po­lice of Karachi to­wards reck­less driv­ing. It is high time that proper steps are taken to put a stop to the reck­less driv­ing of mo­tor cars and other ve­hi­cles in the streets of our thickly pop­u­lated city. We hear and read ev­ery day the news of traf­fic ac­ci­dents by a car or a mo­tor bike be­cause of over speed­ing and reck­less driv­ing.

This is just one as­pect as many women and chil­dren who try to cross the roads of this over­pop­u­lated city be­come vic­tims to such reck­less driv­ing. This has caused many fa­tal ac­ci­dents. Un­doubt­edly, reg­u­la­tions re­gard­ing speed limit do ex­ist, but the driv­ers pay no heed. The po­lice also takes lit­tle or no no­tice of these of­fend­ers; there­fore, ac­ci­dents are a mat­ter of al­most daily oc­cur­rence.

I would like to em­pha­size that the po­lice must strictly en­force the reg­u­la­tions re­gard­ing speed limit and the pub­lic pedes­tri­ans, who are the worst suf­fer­ers, must con­vince and com­pel the po­lice and other au­thor­i­ties to put a stop to reck­less and neg­li­gent driv­ing so that lives of cit­i­zens are saved. —Karachi
