Rawalpindi-The illegal cars sale points at the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Road (Murree) between 6th Road to Chandni Chowk are not only creating traffic congestion for the general public but also causing security hazards in the area.  “The car owners mostly second hand cars sellers park their vehicles illegally on roads and footpaths along the Murree road specially on Thursday and Friday in a week on regular basis, creating problems for the general public and distupting smooth flow of traffic on service roads” the residents complained.

Abdul Wahab, a resident near Chandni chowk told this agency that a number of time the city traffic police imposed a ban on the parking of second hand vehicles sale on Murree road but alleged that the these illegal car sellers violated the ban.

When contacted a police constable on duty agreed and told this agency that parking for sale of second hand vehicles along Murree road was illegal but using the political influence the activity is still going on.

However, the residents and people of the area residing along the Murree road from Sixt road to Chandni Chowk have demanded of the city government administration and traffic police to take immediate action against these illegal cars sale points and impose a complete ban on these sale points for the relief of the people.
