City Traffic Police (CTP) under a special campaign have removed 5126 fancy and improper number plates from vehicles. According to Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Yousaf Ali Shahid, the campaign was launched last week against the vehicles displaying non-pattern and unauthorized number plates.
During the campaign, number plates were removed from 71 buses, mini buses, 397 vans, 161 taxis, 289 rickshaws, 867 cars, jeeps, 2570 motorcycles, 75 tractor trolleys, 47 trucks, 129 pick ups and 520 other vehicles.
The CTO advised the citizens to use computerized number plates on their vehicles. The motorcyclists have also been asked to display proper number plates instead of writing the registration number on mudguard of the motorcycles.
Vehicles and motorcycles would be impounded while challan tickets would also be issued for not removing improper number plates, he added.—APP
