LAHORE - With two days left in the Eid, traffic wardens have miserably failed to manage the unruly traffic in the City that has put the motorists and other people in great trouble. All the main and small roads were almost completely packed with hundreds of vehicles. This is especially true for the traffic mess that was witnessed on the Model Town Link Road, the Mall, Jail Road, Multan Road and Ferozepur Road. Main reasons behind the huge traffic mess on these roads were the absence of traffic wardens, unavailability of parking facilities and influx of shoppers in great numbers. Another reason was the 'qabza' mafia, which has encroached the service roads and also some portion of the main arteries including Model Town Link Road, the Mall and Ferozepur Road. The motorists however, blamed the traffic police for this deteriorating situation of traffic and expressed their dissatisfaction over the security measures taken by the traffic and other police. It is learnt that huge traffic jams were also witnessed on the Lahore Canal Road, Jail Road, Multan Road and some other main arteries of the provincial capital. A motorist Amjad Pasha said that it took him half an hour to reach Township market from Model Town Link Road due to the traffic jam. He said that the traffic jam was so massive on the Model Town Link Road that many motorists left their vehicles on the road and started protesting against the encroachment mafia. The shoppers also remained stuck for hours in such gridlocks and complained of the mismanagement of the authorities concerned. It is learnt that instead of managing traffic, wardens remained busy in imposing fines on motorcyclists.
