Islamabad-The dangerous practice of one-wheeling still goes unchecked on busy roads of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

The highways where this dangerous practice continues unchecked include Benazir Bhutto Road, Kashmir Highways, 9th Avenue, 7th Avenue, Committee Chowk, Nawaz Sharif Park Road and Islamabad Expressway. Young motorcyclists, mostly without helmets, can be seen one-wheeling on the above high-ways.

People have time and again urged the authorities to adopt effective measures to counter the one-wheeling practice. Many young motorcyclists have lost lives in fatal accidents while one-wheeling.

“These youngsters not only endanger their own lives but also pose a serious threat to others by indulging in one-wheeling,” said a resident.

When contacted, an ITP official said, “Some of these motorcyclists were arrested from different areas of the city for one-wheeling, but this trend is increasing every day.” He added that a number of wardens have been deployed to control this practice.
