641 women failed driving test last year


LAHORE – Around 641 women out of 2,670 failed in initial driving license tests while the City Traffic Police issued licenses to 2,029 women in 2010. Traffic police spokesman said that a large number of women had applied for obtaining driving licenses but during initial tests conducted at the Thokar Niaz Baig Centre under supervision of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Ali Iftikhar Jaffry, only 2,029 women succeeded. He said that the traffic police have chalked out a comprehensive mechanism of conducting tests.
“Following orders of Lahore Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Ahmed Mobin, traffic system is being improved and dozens of motorists are approaching the traffic office in order to obtain licenses,” he said. The traffic police have adopted an encouraging attitude towards citizens and this was the main reason that motorists are taking interests in obtaining licenses.
