‘Ill-conceived’ U-turns cause mishaps


The U-turns built improperly on the IG Principle Road, one of most busy thoroughfare located between Islamabad and Rawalpindi, are proving the main reason behind the increasing number of road accidents.
The police had made these U-turns after removing all the signals from the road for maintaining the traffic flow but the end result is quite different and with negative side effects. There are no signs to guide the commuters as the traffic police did not take any safety measures while making these u-turns. The residents of the twin cities have demanded the higher authorities take notice of the issue and ensure proper planning and implementation of remedial steps.
