Traf­fic prob­lems

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - ARBAB AHMED

I want to draw at­ten­tion of con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to­wards Karachi’s big­gest prob­lem, i.e. traf­fic. With the in­creas­ing pop­u­la­tion and in­creas­ing num­ber of ve­hi­cles, prob­lem of traf­fic jams has be­come a rou­tine story. Due to hap­haz­ard and un­ruly traf­fic, our roads are get­tin dan­ger­ous day by day.

Road ac­ci­dents are in­creas­ing, more and more traf­fic jams are mak­ing the sit­u­a­tion more grim and criti- cal. Pedes­tri­ans face a lot of prob­lems in cross­ing roads. The main prob­lem of traf­fic jams is the non-ob­ser­vance of the rules and lack of traf­fic sense on the part of the com­muters who of­ten vi­o­late the one-way signs and have no re­gard to lane-man­age­ment. These prob­lems lead to another big prob­lem of noise pol­lu­tion.

I re­quest the gov­ern­ment and other con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to re­solve this prob­lem as soon as pos­si­ble and I also re­quest the com­muters of the city to co­op­er­ate with traf­fic po­lice to solve this prob­lem. — Via email
