Safer roads

Newspost

 
January 20, 2021

This refers to the letter ‘Chaos on roads’ (Jan 18) by Fatima Gillani. The Peshawar traffic police initiated a campaign against all illegal rickshaws plying on the roads of the city a few years ago. Last year, more than 12,500 rickshaws were impounded and their owners were fined for taking them out on roads without a permit. Also, the police take strict action against encroachments and illegal parking stands on a daily basis.

The Education and Awareness unit of the traffic police has also intensified its campaign and is educating commuters about road safety – especially about lane discipline and the use of the seatbelt and helmet. We all need to strive and work together in making our traffic disciplined and roads safe.
