Driving License and Road Accidents in Pakistan
The accident ratio is increasing in Pakistan and everyday we see motorcyclists involved in different accidents on our way to office,university or home. Most accidents involve underage drivers who are not aware of traffic laws and can’t hold their nerves in a tensed situation.
According to a survey only 65% of motorcyclists in Pakistan have a valid driving license but still their are many who don’t have. A large number of those are under 21 years and they’re more likely to be involved in accidents.
The situation of 65% who have driving license is also not very good because a large number of them have gained licenses using unfair means.People here don’t like to stand in lines and spend time according to the law. Also many people are reported to bribe the officers and avoid practical driving tests.
Because of these reasons people are not aware of traffic regulations,they switch lanes and have no ideas about over taking or merging in lanes.Not to mention people also don’t wear helmet and the vehicle is also not properly maintained.
Lets be honest,one has to know the value of life and thats the only way to make a sensible rider who follows traffic rules and rides safely.
Vast tu sach hy magar vat hy ruswai ki
sir, we should educate our youngsters on importance of having a driving license
Assalam o alaikum I do agree with you for all you said but I apologize to say that our generation fails to consider one’s life important. Almost all of us are aware of the laws and regulations but none tend to follow. I’m a youngster and I do try to follow the laws but when you’re on a road and all ppl just randomly move like in a fishmarket you can’t simply follow the rules. We being in a hurry while driving will cause accidents and I think that this is the main reason accident are increasing at alarming rate 🙂 I hope our generation take this as a soul responsibility so that in future every one obeys the law
I m glad that you are a sensible motorcyclist.Riding with maturity is better then not riding at all. The thing is that if every one of us will be taking care, all of us will be getting better eventually
Haris bhai basically it’s a fault of corruption as usual our departments .if you are going apply for licence on right way it’s very difficult get, unless you paid to Concern for chaiy pani? .Even some one has valid driving licence no buddy knows he buy this or get after proper training.
2nd if you are not following rules also not wearing helmet just pay 20 30rs and you are free for break rules.
3rd main fault of parents who give permission to ride or drive .
