Point Systems in Islamabad Traffic

Traffic Police After trying to make Seat belts usage a permanent fixture in Islamabad’s traffic and discouraged use of mobiles during driving, ITP (Islamabad Traffic Police) is all planning to implement Point Systems.

If i’m not wrong this is the first time point systems will be introduced in the country. Lately the traffic has become a mess in the city, thanks to a  zillion on-lease cars out on roads and the new avenues and flyovers in construction.

Talking of the points system, licences of motorists/motorcycles would marked with a point every time they were ticketed and the marking would continue till 20th traffic rule violation was committed. The driving licenses of the traffic violators would be suspended after 20 violations of traffic rules.

“The system will be enforced within two months and Islamabad will thus become the first district among 110 license issuing districts in the country to enforce such system as per 11th schedule of the Motor Vehicle Ordinance 1965”, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Muhammad Zubair Hashmi said in a press conference.

Ahh ha, so be prepared to start counting the points off i.e., ofcourse if you have a driving license.

    I was just wondering what would they do if they catch some one with a license from other district? How are they going to deduct points from him?
