ISLAMABAD: Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) have constituted special squads for effective action against those driving vehicles with tinted glasses and fined 17,249 vehicle owners.

Following directions of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Qazi Jamilur Rehman, ITP have accelerated efforts to take action against owners of vehicles with tinted glass. Senior Superintendent of Police (Traffic) Farrukh Rasheed has urged citizens to avoid using tinted glass and follow traffic rules for a safe road environment in the city.

He has also directed officials to take strict action against those driving vehicles with tinted glass as per law with a purpose to eliminate VIP culture. The SSP ordered them to check every violation and issue violation ticket to every violator.

“The elimination of VIP culture and equal application of law are our main objectives which would be achieved at every cost,” he said.

He also directed his staff to continue education campaign and inculcate traffic sense among road users. He stressed the need to bridge the gap between police and public by adopting a polite attitude and by demonstrating sense of responsibility.

This campaign will continue in the coming days to curb this violation effectively, the SSP said, adding the zonal in-charge would be solely responsible if any vehicle with tinted glass is observed on roads.

He directed officials of police squads to accelerate action against tinted glass vehicles and said that he would himself review the official’s performance on a regular basis in this regard.
