Directive to check violations on highways


Punjab Inspector General Police (IGP) Faisal Shahkar said the morale of the officials has increased after equalising the allowance of the Punjab Highway Patrol (PHP) force with Punjab Police by the chief minister. He said that the provision of new patrolling vehicles and modern resources would significantly improve the efficiency of PHP, while the establishment of new check posts would increase patrolling on the highways and further reduce highway crime.

The IG directed that the PHP teams should perform their duties more diligently in order to prevent accidents on roads and no exception should be taken in action on violations of other laws including over speeding and illegal number plates.

Faisal Shahkar directed that the inspection and performance of the river check posts in different districts of the province should be monitored regularly, and said the patrolling process on motor boats should also continue.
