Following instructions from the IGP, Dr. Akbar Nasir Khan, he said a special campaign was underway to verify violations while various squads carried out duties on the main roads of the city and took action against violators. .
SSP (Traffic) Syed Mustafa Tanveer said efforts are underway to ensure a disciplinary traffic system in the city and he also called on citizens to follow the rules. He said ITP staff were instructed to ensure the implementation of traffic rules and regulations regardless of status and rank, and to be patient and polite when issuing fines for road users.
He said that the ITP uses all available resources to facilitate the general public. The force issues traffic tickets, not as a punitive measure, but with the aim of ensuring a safe road environment in the capital and securing people’s lives.
