Bring ITP to Punjab!

The efforts being undertaken to bring the traffic under control and ensure adherence to the laws as seen by the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) are more than impressive; they are the need of the hour! The revamped Lahore Traffic Police should learn a thing or two from their counterparts in Islamabad.

It is against the law to yap on your cellular device while driving and you better have a seat belt on. Not just that, if your front seat passenger is not wearing a seat belt, you (the driver) are still in for a fine! Another fine awaits you if you are driving on high beams in the capital!

I have no doubt in my mind that these laws will be enforced and followed through with utmost commitment from the ITP. They have proved that fact ever since they have been given control of the roads in the capital.

However, it is a dismal picture that has been set by the Traffic Police here in Lahore. The only place I have seen them active is on the Mall Rd. period! These days, in Lahore, you can literally get away with any thing with or without a Traffic warden present. They are too busy chatting on their cell phones or found chilling in the shades or in the nearby shops in groups of 3-5.

You are on your own in Lahore my friend, but then again, some people like this sort of freedom and are happy without being checked for violating and laws of the road.
