Through the column of your esteemed newspaper, I want to draw the attention of concerned authorities towards the traffic problems in our city. I am well aware that many columns have been written on this topic, and I am trying to make one more effort by writing on the said topic with hope that I might be able to attract the attention of concern authorities towards this serious matter.
As we are all well aware that traffic problem is increasing day by day with the increase in population and tremendous increase in the number of cars on the road. Surprisingly a large number of people driving cars in the cosmopolitan city of Karachi without driving license with no fear in their mind that they will be caught or penalized by the concerned authorities because they know that they will get away with anything by giving the pity amount to the concerned authorities. Unfortunately people who are driving the cars and the people who are letting them do this without the proper documentation are danger to this society and in my opinion both of them are equally responsible for destruction of this society.
I would like to suggest to the Government officials that like Government has passed and implemented the law of one dish for marriage; in the similar manner government should seriously consider by passing the law of one car per family without giving any leverage to anyone. I am very much sure that large number of cars will be taken off from the road by passing and implementing this law and it will resolve the major issue of traffic in our country.
I surely hope that the concerned authorities and departments will at least consider my suggestion in the best interest of country and the people living in it, because they are on their seats to serve the people of this country and they are not only answerable to the law and themselves but they are also answerable to Allah and no deal will be made with Allah except the fair deal.
