I want to draw the attention of concerned authorities towards to the traffic problems in our country. The traffic in Karachi is getting worse by the hour. The main problem with traffic hazards in Karachi is the corrupt police and traffic mafia and the increasing number of vehicles. Everyone wants to travel comfortably and reach their destination on time. To save time, people use their own personal transport as the government transport is not reliable. What adds to the woe of the commuters is the bad condition of roads, added to that is the rash driving by bus drivers in the main city. These fast driven buses cause many accidents daily. Pedestrians find it difficult to cross the roads, traffic rules are openly violated, and traffic police are negligent in their duties. I request the concerned authorities to take strict and quick action to solve these problems. KASHIF MUSHTAQ ARAIN, Karachi, September 25.
