The traffic in Karachi is getting worse hour by hour. Everyone wants to travel comfortably and reach one’s destination on time. To save time, people use their own personal transport as the government transport is lacking and not reliable.
With massive traffic gridlocks becoming an everyday problem for the commuters of Karachi, whether because of roads and flyovers being closed for repairs, security blockades, rallies or the opening of a new departmental store built without a parking lot. It is pretty clear that there will be chaos on the major thoroughfares during peak hours during Ramazan and the Karachi’s traffic police chief is desperately seeking the cooperation of other departments and higher authorities to overcome the challenge.
The Ramazan-ul-Mubarik, the holy month of patience, has started but due to traffic sickness people often lose their temper and their impatience, intolerance and anger culminates into situations of clashes and quarrels among the people. I request the concerned authorities to take strict and quick action to solve the problem of traffic jams. —Via email
