The National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP) N-5 North Zone kicked off a special campaign regarding online checking of route permits, fitness certificates and other documents.
According to DIG, N-5 North Zone Wisal Fakhar Sultan, the campaign had been launched for Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) and Transport Vehicles with Regional Transport Authorities (RTAs) and Personnel from Vehicle Inspection and Certification System (VICS), Punjab.
The DIG said that the aim of this drive was to ensure passengers’ safety and the road users through eradication of mechanically unfit transport vehicles from National Highways. The relevant documents of all PSVs, transport vehicles plying in the jurisdiction of N-5, North Zone from Peshawar to Lahore (G.T. Road) were being checked under the campaign at specified checking points and stern enforcement including heavy fines were being imposed against the rules violators.
The number of road accidents due to unfit transport vehicles were increasing day by day and this campaign was initiated to prevent the ratio of road crashes through effective utilisation of online database facilities provided by the RTAs concerned and VICS, Punjab, he said.
He directed the drivers of all PSVs and transport vehicles must ensure pasting of valid fitness certificates on the windscreens of their vehicles regularly as this would ease up the checking process during this campaign.
