CHITRAL: On the orders of the District Police Officer Lower Chitral Ikramullah, action is being taken against underage motorcyclists in order to prevent possible traffic accidents.

The district administration has imposed Section 144 in the district for a month under which one-wheeling, aerial firing, exhibition of weapons and use of loudspeakers in public places are banned.

Under the leadership of SHOs of City Police Chitral and other police stations, several young drivers and youths who were wheeling were taken to different police stations and their parents were called and asked not to  allow their underage children to drive a car or a motorcycle in the future.

The police are taking written undertaking from the parents before releasing the underage bike rives.

The DPO Lower said parents should obey the law and never allow their young children to drive a car or a motorcycle, in case of violation, legal action will be taken against the parents.

Underage bike riders and those without licence have become a public nuisance in both Lower and Upper Chitral.

They also put their own life and those of other at risk. The police launch such campaigns on special occasions, but do not implement the law round the year.
