With the aim of maintaining traffic discipline and a safe road environment in the city, the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) has made the decision to suspend the driving licenses of habitual offenders of traffic rules.
Syed Mustafa Tanveer, Senior Superintendent of Police (Traffic), said the ITP has put in place a system to hold those who break traffic rules accountable. He stated that digital challan records would be reviewed on a regular basis, and that those whose licenses had been revoked for repeated violations of traffic laws would have their license suspended.
He has also instructed the Zonal DSPs to maintain traffic discipline in the city and prosecute violators sternly.
In its first step, ITP examined the digital challan log and identified 17 people who had been involved in multiple violations under sections 15 and 16 of the Motor Vehicle Ordinance. Six of the 17 violators have been ordered to attend traffic rules and road safety classes for five days, while the driving licenses of 11 others have been suspended.
He stated that violators of traffic rules will face severe consequences, and that road users will be held accountable in order to protect the lives of others.
SSP Traffic warned that violators would be supervised on a routine basis and that there would be no tolerance for traffic violations.
