ISLAMABAD: The dangerous practice of one-wheeling is continuing on busy roads in Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

Young motorcyclists, mostly without helmets, can be seen one-wheeling near Committee Chowk and Nawaz Sharif Park, Shamsabad on Murree Road and Islamabad Expressway.

They are usually successful in dodging traffic wardens.

“These youngsters not only endanger their own lives but also pose a serious threat to others by indulging in one-wheeling. They also interrupting the traffic flow,” said one traffic warden.

These young one-wheelers are often seen performing dangerous stunts. One person suggested that motorbikers should be allowed to demonstrate their stunts only during Eid, Independence Day and New Year. Some of these motorcyclists are arrested from different areas of the city for one-wheeling, but this trend is increasing every day, he said.

A group of people urged the authorities to adopt effective measures to counter one-wheeling.
