Traf­fic rules and road ac­ci­dents

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - MOHSIN AZEEM

As com­pare to any other prob­lem of Karachi, traf­fic rules and road ac­ci­dents are also a very alarm­ing and dan­ger­ous prob­lem of this mega city. Most of these ac­ci­dents are caused be­cause of pub­lic trans­port and due to care-free driv­ing of young gen­er­a­tion.

These road ac­ci­dents are hap­pen­ing be­cause ma­jor­ity of driv­ers are un­aware of ba­sic rules of driv­ing. An­other ma­jor rea­son is that mostly driv­ers of pub­lic trans­port are harsh, un­e­d­u­cated and to­tally un­aware of ba­sic traf­fic rules and reg­u­la­tions. Fit­ness cer­tifi­cates are is­sued to faulty ve­hi­cles with­out any test.

A faulty ve­hi­cle, with un­sat­is­fac­tory run­ning and oper­at­ing con­di­tion, in hands of an in­ex­pe­ri­enced driver, is noth­ing but a pub­lic men­ace and is like a mo­bile death roam­ing on the roads. The said prob­lem needs ur­gent at­ten­tion, which causes heavy loss of pre­cious lives. I hope that author­i­ties will take a solid ac­tion to solve high­lighted prob­lem. — Karachi
