Lahore: The City Traffic Police in Lahore is actively intensifying its efforts to address the issue of underage and unlicensed drivers on the city’s roads.
Over the past five days, a total of 1060 cases involving underage drivers and 210 cases related to driving without a license have been officially recorded.
Mustansar Feroze, the Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) of Lahore, reported that the crackdown yielded 210 cases on the very first day, targeting individuals who were operating vehicles without a valid license.
In response to this ongoing concern, he announced comprehensive measures, stating that 30 license offices, 10 mobile vans, and three centers will remain operational around the clock within the city.
Additionally, he emphasized that all license offices in the city will maintain regular operation hours even on Sundays.
Highlighting the significance of this initiative, Mustansar Feroze further conveyed that the Caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, has issued explicit instructions to the Inspector General Police (IGP), Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Lahore, and all Regional Police Officers (RPOs).
These directives emphasize the importance of taking decisive action against underage drivers operating both vehicles and motorcycles without the requisite licenses.
The concerted efforts of the City Traffic Police align with the broader strategy to enhance road safety and enforce traffic regulations in the region.
