One-wheeling continues in twin cities


The dangerous practice of one-wheeling still goes unchecked on busy roads of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.

Young motorcyclists, mostly without helmets, can be seen one-wheeling at Murree Road, Kashmir Highways, Ninth Avenue, Seventh Avenue, Committee Chowk, Nawaz Sharif Park road and Islamabad Expressway.

People have, time and again, urged the authorities to adopt effective measures to counter one-wheeling as many young motorcyclists have lost their lives in fatal accidents while one-wheeling.

“These youngsters not only endanger their own lives but also pose a serious threat to others by indulging in one-wheeling. They also interrupting the traffic flow,” said a resident.

An Islamabad Traffic Police official said, “Some of these motorcyclists have been arrested from different areas of the city for one-wheeling, but this trend is increasing every day.

“A number of wardens have been deployed at various roads to control this dangerous practice,” he added.
