ISLAMABAD, Aug 16 (APP):Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) ensured effective measures to curb stunts on

As per plan, ITP constituted 20 different squads to prevent one wheeling
on 7th and 9th Avenues, Margalla Road, Faizabad Expressway, Murree
Road, Rawal Dam Chowk and other important boulevards.
Hundreds of bike riders were fined and their bikes were impounded for

ensured by ITP teams on important roads and policemen remained on duty
to check such violations.
The SSP (Traffic) Farrukh Rasheed himself supervised all these efforts and appreciated the force for effective implementation on measures devised to
check traffic violations by youngsters.

effective role and refrain their children in future from the dangerous stunts
of one wheeling and racing. He said that ITP would have no option but to
take stern action against those involved in such practices.
