Islamabad Police Forms Special Squads to Punish Public Transport Violators

Commuters in Islamabad can breathe a sigh of relief as the Islamabad Capital Police (ICTP) have begun taking strict measures against public service vehicles (PSVs) that violate traffic rules and mistreat passengers. With the goal of facilitating daily travelers and improving public transportation in the city, the Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) of Islamabad, Dr. Syed Mustafa Tanveer, has announced a crackdown on PSVs that fail to complete their routes, overcharge passengers, and engage in misconduct. 

To ensure compliance, ICTP will issue challan tickets to PSVs that violate traffic rules, and the department will cancel the driving licenses of non-compliant PSV (public service vehicles) drivers. The CTO has also emphasized that legal action against violators will be severe, and the squads’ progress will be assessed regularly. 

Special squads have been formed and deployed to check for route violations, following directives from the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Islamabad, Dr. Nasir Akbar Khan. Furthermore, ICTP has set up a 24/7 helpline (051-9261992, 93, or 1915) to resolve public complaints effectively.

These proactive measures taken by ICTP are a welcome development and will go a long way in ensuring a safer and more comfortable public transport experience for commuters in Islamabad. The helpline is a bonus, providing an avenue for passengers to report any issues they face while commuting. Let us hope that these measures lead to a safer and more efficient public transport system in the city.
