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
