As we all know that our traffic is worst. Being a driver I can feel that there should be some reforms in our traffic system. So we can become the good drivers and have good traffic system. After all the research and observation, I come to conclusion that the basic problem of this worst traffic is that we don’t have rules, and proper implementation system.
Let me give you an example, Lahore and Rawalpindi traffic is known as to be worst. As I am a Pindi boy I will explain my point with respect to twin city traffic. We all know that traffic rules and traffic police of Islamabad are very strict. So all the bad drivers that ruled out all the traffic rules in Rawalpindi, when the enters into the Islamabad territory, they automatically become good citizen . And start driving according to the traffic rules, people put their seats belt on, bikes put the helmets on, follow the lines, stop on the signals, respect others and give ways, don’t show public stunt, follow the proper speed limits, don’t do wrong turns, in short they become civilized. Why is this so? Do you have any answer of it?
Let me tell you, it’s because of mentality. We have a mindset that we follow the rules by hook. We work goods till we have fear of being penalized. This traffic rules are for our safety, putting seats belt on, wearing helmet it’s all for our safety, but we take it as a burden, but let me tell you this burden can save your life. So we should make a habit of following rules everywhere, because life is the precious gift that was given to us by GOD. So do respect the gift, and drive save to keep yourself save and others also.
I have few suggestions for the government.Put some serious penalization on those how just follow the rules to avoid the challan. They put the seat belts on, wear helmet when they see traffic warden, and when the cross the wardens, the trough all the rules into dustbin. For those people there should be double challan. So they don’t do such a worst act again.
Another suggestion is that warden behavior play very important role in the traffic uplift. Let take the example of Islamabad traffic police and Motorways police. They are known of their professionalism and polite talking skills. Follow the formula of give respect to the drivers, and get respect in returns. Never don’t ask for the bribe, and don’t take the bribe. That make them loyal to their profession and make them trust worthy. This attitude should be adopted through out all the wardens of the country . It help in a lot in the civilization of the Pakistan traffic.
