Rawalpindi : City Traffic Police (CTP) under their on-going drive against one-wheelers have netted 33 during Ramazan while FIRs under section 99/A were also registered in different police stations.

According to Chief Traffic Officer (CTO), Rawalpindi Muhammad Bin Ashraf, Traffic Police also impounded as many as 1,017 motorcycles prepared for one-wheeling under section-550. He said, a large number of underage drivers on rash and dangerous driving were also issued challan tickets.

He said, special squads of CTP were taking action in accordance with the law against one-wheelers and car-skaters and making efforts to control the activity.

Though, the activity was already being checked by traffic wardens but now, several other arrangements had been made to curb the activity.

Special squads comprising Traffic Wardens and District Police personnel were deployed at Murree Road, Flyovers, Peshawar Road, Mall Road, Airport Road and other main city roads.

He informed that Traffic Police officers were directed to keep a vigilant eye on the one-wheelers so that action in accordance with the law could be taken against them.

The CTO said that strict action would also be taken against motorcycle mechanics, altering motorcycles for race and one-wheeling.

The cases under section 99/A and 279 would be registered against them and they would be sent behind the bars, he added.

He said, one-wheelers were not only playing with their own lives but they were also a threat for other road users that is why stern action was being taken against them.

The efforts to control the activity would continue and cases would be registered against one-wheelers, he added. He said the citizens particularly parents should play their role to curb the activity as one wheeling, rash and negligent driving were the main causes for fatal accidents.
