Speed bumps add to motorists woes
KASUR-The excessive number of speed breakers has given rise to traffic mess and road accidents in Kasur district. A survey report says that there lies a speed bump at every chowk and turning point of roads. It causes severe problems for motorists in shape of traffic mess and accidents. Besides, substandard material is used for raising these bumps on roads. While the funds released to ensure quality in the construction allegedly goes into “someone’s pockets”. People complain about their failure to have a smooth drive on roads due to abundance of bumps on roads. Local political and social circles have appealed to Deputy Commissioner Saira Umar to take notice of the situation. They also demanded thorough investigation into the fraud being done under the guise of ‘speed breakers construction’.
People have reportedly been falling victim to diarrhoea and digestive disorders due to consumption of low quality milkshake being sold at juice corners at every nook and cranny of Kasur city. It has been learnt that discarded fruits are allegedly used for making milkshakes. These juice corners are very beautifully decorated and well-furnished to attract customers. People visit these juice shops, drink milkshakes and suffer stomach diseases and other disorders. The administration is asleep as usual. People demand the Kasur deputy commissioner action against the practice.
