The Superintendent of Police (SP) Traffic Quetta Range Malik Muhammad Javed Ahmed said that trackers have been installed in 315 passenger coaches to prevent accidents and loss of human lives by controlling the speed of vehicles plying on long roads on national highways including N-25 and N-40.

He expressed these views while talking to media men on Wednesday, adding that the purpose of trackers in passenger coaches was to ensure implementation of traffic rules, controlling speeding and improper driving on national highways in the areas.

The SP said that the police was playing a key role for ensuring compliance to traffic rules alongside enforcing rules among across Balochistan.

He said that now police could keep an eye on these 315 buses remotely and this would hopefully result in responsible driving. He said that eventually trackers would be installed in all buses so that accidents can be controlled and loss of human lives can be prevented.

He said that computerized driving licenses were being issued by the traffic police in 34 districts of Balochistan to the candidates after passing driving exams.

The SP said that the owners of the transport companies should recruit properly trained and skilled drivers to prevent their vehicles from road accidents and mechanical issues.
