MURREE: A traffic plan has been devised by the City Traffic Police in Murree in connection with New Year’s Eve in Murree Circle, following orders from Rawalpindi Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Mohammad Bin Ashraf,.

Under the plan, Mall Road will be closed to all traffic on New Year’s Eve, and traffic wardens will be deployed in Murree.

Underage drivers and motorcycle drivers without helmets or without registration plates will be banned. Strict legal action will be taken against violators of traffic rules and squads have been formed to act against vehicles with tinted windows.

“Tourists and visitors are advised to cooperate with the traffic police and follow traffic rules strictly for their own safety and the safety of others,” appealed Murree traffic police spokes person Muzammal Abbasi.

He said that speeding in mountainous areas is dangerous, and speeding and parking on the sides of the road should be avoided so traffic can flow smoothly.
