Pakistan’s largest city Karachi as it is surrounded in numerous problems. But its painful and long-standing concerns are traffic jam. Former city government has construct many flyovers, subways and widened the roads as well, But this concerns not only remains but is becoming worse day by day. The number of vehicles is increasing rapidly as much as on the roads. This increase is unable to provide an opportunity for citizens from these developments. To one side the city streets have been narrow because of the number of vehicles, On the other hand, even our own created problems has seriously disturb the crisis of traffic jams. This problem becomes even more serious when any VIP passes a special and particular road or highway. The other vehicles can not pass until Key personnel vehicles do not pass. This is also a reason of traffic jam. Car riders are suffering from a mental distress. Another major cause of traffic jams is Encroachment. The encroachments are to establish on the footpaths, and in a few days then they take control of half the road.
Which seriously affect the flow of traffic? There is a legal action against the encroachments which are not beneficial. Because these encroachments are re-established after few months. Different political and religious parties are using these main roads for their party rallies and meeting and processions. This is also a cause of traffic jam in the cities because of these rallies and Picketing. Furthermore, if an event occurred in the city then the city’s traffic situation becomes even more deteriorated. Police placed barriers for security checks there is limited space for vehicles to pass; it is also a reason of traffic jam on the key roads. When it rains in the city so there is no special provision for water drainage. In most businesses and busy places where there is no specific car parking, People tend to park their vehicles at the roadside. It also raises the issue of traffic jam. What we need is, where the relevant authorities to take steps to solve the traffic problems, in this regard there is a responsibility of citizens as well to cooperate in solving such problem of traffic jam in our country. And people should not arise such situation which create traffic jam.
