Ban on pillion riding

Published Mar 29, 2013 05:02am

THIS is with reference to the almost daily killings of high-profile personalities like Parveen Rehman, Prof Sibte Jaffar, a doctor of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital and many more for the last one year.

All these killings are being carried by motorcyclists. A single driver cannot do this inhuman act of terrorism.

Although it will be difficult to carry smooth running of work force in the city, the only solution to save innocent human lives is to ban pillion riding on motorcycles except for family and children.

I request the authorities concerned to consider this suggestion to reduce the scale of such horrific crimes.
