Po­lice makes traf­fic plan for Chand Raat, Eid day

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

RAWALPINDI—Rawalpindi City Traf­fic Po­lice (CTP) have chalked out a com­pre­hen­sive plan for Chand Raat and Eidul Fitr.

Un­der the plan, en­hanced num­ber of traf­fic war­dens will be de­ployed in main city ar­eas in or­der to avoid traf­fic mess on Chand Raat and dur­ing Eid prayers. A con­trol room has been set up at Traf­fic Po­lice Head­quar­ters to mon­i­tor the sit­u­a­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to Act­ing Chief Traf­fic Of­fi­cer (CTO) Iftikhar ul Haq, all-out ef­forts would be made to con­trol traf­fic on city roads, es­pe­cially on Chand Raat. He warned one-wheel­ers of strict ac­tion. Traf­fic war­dens have been di­rected to im­pound mo­tor­cy­cles of one-wheel­ers in re­spec­tive po­lice sta­tions, he added.

He urged the cit­i­zens, par­tic­u­larly par­ents, to play their role in curb­ing the ac­tiv­ity as one wheel­ing, rash and neg­li­gent driv­ing were the main causes of fa­tal ac­ci­dents.

All the traf­fic of­fi­cers and war­dens have also been di­rected to re­main present at their duty points so that no traf­fic jam could be wit­nessed, he added. The CTO said in view of the se­cu­rity of the cit­i­zens, spe­cial traf­fic ar­range­ments had been made. Park­ing of ve­hi­cles near mosques, Imam­bar­gahs and other re­li­gious places would not be al­lowed.

Traf­fic po­lice of­fi­cers, he said, had also been di­rected to keep a vig­i­lant eye on sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cles. Strict ac­tion in ac­cor­dance with the law has also been or­dered against ve­hi­cles hav­ing tinted glasses or mov­ing in the city with­out num­ber plates, he added.—APP
