I want to draw attention of the city administrator and other related authorities about the problem caused by everyday traffic jams in Karachi. The roads in Karachi everywhere have become narrow as compared to the number of vehicles running on them. The work in progress at various places is also a cause of traffic jams. The traffic usually remains jam every day.
In the morning, there are long lines of vehicles which move slowly from Numaish to Tower, everyone looks in hurry and wants to go fast, especially the motorcyclists, rickshaws and bus drivers break traffic rules and create problems for others. Every one moves with his own will, due to this traffic mess, the students, office going people and others usually cannot reach in time.
There is no way an ambulance can go through in which a serious patient is being taken to the hospital. In the evening, there is the worst traffic jams on the roads in Karachi. People reach back to their homes from their working places after spending several hours in the traffic jams on this road.
Karachi is the biggest city of Pakistan and also one of the most populated cities in the world. The ever-increasing rush of heavy traffic on the roads often results in loss of human life.
A majority of the people in Karachi travel in buses, minibuses and coaches, which run on the roads carrying passengers beyond their capacity as many are often seen to be seated on the roof of the buses. The traffic in Karachi is now almost uncontrollable. Drivers drive recklessly. The traffic police mostly do not bother about the rules not followed by drivers as they put lives of the passengers at risk. This is due to a lack of civic sense in people which results in violation of traffic rules and laws. Traffic jams, road quarrels, untidiness and damage to public property are also the consequences of this problem. I request the higher authorities and the department of traffic police for taking severe steps, so that everyone can travel with comfort and the problem of traffic jams can be handled properly.
