Karachi traf­fic big is­sue

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

SAFDAR JAMALI I want to draw the at­ten­tion of con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to­wards the traf­fic prob­lems in our coun­try. Heavy traf­fic is one of the worst headache prob­lems. In Karachi, it is get­ting worse with ev­ery com­ing day. The main prob­lem with traf­fic haz­ards in Karachi is cor­rupt po­lice and traf­fic mafia and in­creas­ing num­ber of ve­hi­cles. Lots of new ve­hi­cles are reg­is­tered daily and they come on the roads which is why the num­ber of ve­hi­cles is in­creas­ing rapidly in Karachi.

Ev­ery­one wants that he should travel very com­fort­ably and reach his des­ti­na­tion as fast as pos­si­ble. It’s for sav­ing time that they use their ve­hi­cles. No one prefers public trans­port for trav­el­ling. An­other prob­lem is de­crepit roads, poor in­fra­struc­ture and the hu­mil­i­a­tion one suf­fers while us­ing the public trans­port.

An­other prob­lem that needs to be high­lighted here, is the reck­less driv­ing by bus driv­ers. Bus driv­ers usu­ally drive very fast which causes ac­ci­dents. Pedes­tri­ans find it dif­fi­cult to walk freely on roads, traf­fic rules are openly vi­o­lated, traf­fic po­lice is neg­li­gent of its du­ties. I re­quest the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties to take strict and quick ac­tion to solve this prob­lem. — Karachi
