MAILSI-The number of underage drivers of rickshaws and bikes increased as there is no resistance from the traffic police, resultantly, road accidents are on the rise.

Local people said that no one can control the underage drivers. Mostly during off timings of girls colleges and schools, a huge number of rickshaws and bikes causes traffic mess. Local notables said that they have for a lot of time complained to Mailsi DSP Ghulam Shabbir to take action and deploy police at schools to control the situation but to no avail. They said that worst affected areas are Quaid-i-Azam Road, Railway Crossing on Multan Road, Colony Road, Girls College Road and Girls High School roads.
