A crackdown is under way against drivers of public transport vehicles who violate traffic rules in Swat.
The crackdown has been going on for the last ten days in which drivers of public transport vehicles are being booked for charging higher fares, having no license and/or tinted windows of vehicles.
“So far, drivers of 166 vehicles have been issued challans for charging higher fare and 287 vehicles have been issued challans for overloading, fixing illegal gas cylinders and violating traffic laws,” said Motor Vehicle Officer Mohammad Akram.
“Drivers of 453 vehicles have been booked for tints on their vehicles’ windows and not having route permits.”
The crackdown will continue to enforce traffic rules and regulations in the valley, he added. “No leniency will be shown to the drivers for violating traffic rules.”
