Currently there are 3.8 million (38 lakh) vehicles on the streets of Karachi and each day 900 vehicles are being added to Karachi streets, but no plans have been made for Traffic Management. These statements were made by DIG Traffic Police Amir Ahmed Sheikh in Sindh High Court.
DIG Traffic Police said that the streets of Karachi are overcrowded with vehicles but it is not possible to accommodate them properly without any proper plan.
DIG Traffic was present in the court in regard of case hearing aginst VIP Culture. He clarified that Traffic Police doesn’t close road for VIP movements but it only helps other security institutions.
It has been reported that from 38 lakh vehicle owners in Karachi only 12 lakh have a proper driving license. If you are one of the 900 daily new comers then you can easily get Learners driving License or can get a proper license through simple procedure.
Many people who got their licenses in past through paying fees to agents were given fake licenses. Those licenses are not acceptable and people are required to get a new license. To check whether your license is original or fake Sindh government has launched an app named Driving License Sindh.
