Talking to APP, acting Chief Traffic Officer, (CTO) Rawalpindi, Iftikhar ul Haq said strict orders had been issued to all traffic wardens,inspectors, deputy superintendents of police (DSPs) in all sectors that action in accordance with the law should be taken against those indulging in one-wheeling, and no one should be spared.
The motorcycles, especially prepared for one wheeling should be impounded, he said, adding, arrangements were made to curb the activity, particularly at Airport Road, Peshawar Road, Jhelum Road, Ayub Park, and other areas to protect youngsters as the thrilling exercise was a leading cause of death and severe injuries of the riders.
The CTO said though the activity was already being checked by traffic officials deputed on the city roads but special arrangements had also been made to control rash and dangerous driving and one-wheeling in the city.
He said one-wheelers were not only playing with their own lives but also a threat for other road users. He urged parents to play their role to curb the activity as one-wheeling, rash, and negligent driving were the main causes for fatal accidents.—APP
