Speaking on the occasion, Zahid Maqbool, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) said that ICT Traffic Police has improved its image greatly by its good performance. “However, still there is a lot of room for reforms,” the ICCI President remarked.
He suggested that red light signal violators should be given exemplary punishment because their undisciplined driving could prove fatal for others adding that motorcycle wheeling should be completely banned as it often leads to fatal accidents of youngsters.
He said ICT Traffic Police should visit colleges and universities to educate youngsters about the dangers of wheeling adding that workshops and seminars should also be arranged for proper education of people about safety measures while driving and compliance of traffic rules.
