TURBAT: The new rule in Karachi prohibits motorcyclists to ride without a helmet. However, road accidents in Turbat are on the rise. Despite the strict rules of road safety, people ignore traffic rules and are met with accidents. Many precious lives have been lost and families destroyed because of this. People are careless while driving. Most motorcyclists do not wear helmet. They violate traffic signals and break other traffic rules. I urge the authorities concerned to enforce traffic rules strictly and make helmets mandatory.
