traffic in karachi

Numbing traffic jams in Karachi have become routine. Though Chief Minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim doesn’t want Supreme Court to interfere in such matters, People are looking hopefully at the respectable judges. Supreme Court’s sou motor notice of traffic hell in Karachi reflects that how much the situation has aggravated.

After the devils of street crimes and load-shedding, Karachi has received yet another gift of hours long traffic jams throughout the Megapolis. Its the sheer incompetency and poor performance of traffic police, which is hapless in this regard. There are so many reasons for this stuck-up dense crowd of traffic, main ones are the absence of traffic police, congested roads, out of order traffic signals, arrangements for VVIPs that hold up traffic, and the still-in-construction roads.

hello kitty

Pakistan, Karachi -Pak police officers who break rules will be forced to wear hot pink armbands featuring “hello kitty,” the Pakistani icon of cute, as a mark of shame, a senior officer said,Police officers caught littering, parking in a prohibited area, or arriving late — among other misdemeanors — will be forced to stay in the division office and wear the armband all day. The officers will wear the armband in public. The striking armband features Hello Kitty sitting atop two hearts. “Simple warnings no longer work. This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor,”.

“(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It’s not something Pak police officers want covering their biceps,”.

We want to make sure that we do not condone small offenses, adding that getting tough on petty misdemeanors would lead to fewer cases of more serious offenses including abuse of power and mistreatment of the public by police officers.
