No road safety course, no driving licence

ISLAMABAD, Sept 30 (WNP): National Highways and Motorway Police (NHMP) Monday asked to follow the modern lines as being practiced in advanced countries to hold proper short course for driving licence seekers.

Rehan Khan – a senior journalist – said this while addressing a seminar on ‘Dosing on the Wheel’ held in International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI) to sensitize its staffers pertaining to transport section and students of various departments.

He said it would automatically help decrease road accidents across the country. The prevailing criteria for seeking the driving licence is a bit difficult but it does not meet the international standards, he added.

To come up with international standard and to decrease the annual ratio of road crashes, we have to design a short course based on all necessary information regarding traffic rules and regulations and we have to make it mandatory for all those seeking driving licences.

Rehan said to organize such seminars for awareness purpose is one of the good initiatives but it is not a permanent solution of the issue. “So we have to go out of the box and make such strategies which could help save maximum precious lives which are being lost in daily petty road accidents.

At the end of the event, NHMP Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Jamil Ahmed Hashmi awarded the commemorating shields among those who help traffic police to sensitize the issue through different means of communication.

Rehan Khan was also awarded by the shield and lauded by the distinguished chief guest SSP Hashmi for his innovative ideas.
