Death on wheels: SHC bans heavy vehicles on Karachi’s roads during day time – Pakistan

Weeks after two youngsters were crushed to death under a heavy dumper truck, commuters in Karachi will now be able to drive a little more safely during the day after the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday ordered the city’s traffic authorities to immediately ban the day-time entry of heavy vehicles on the city’s thoroughfares.

During Thursday’s court proceedings, Justice Nadeem Akhtar remarked that heavy traffic should not be allowed in Karachi from 6am to 11pm.

Those found violating the rules and entering the city forcibly would see their vehicles impounded rather than getting off with a fine.

The court ordered the city’s traffic authorities to implement these directives immediately. If any institution interferes in the implementation of these orders, the court directed that these institutions should directly approach the court.
