SSP Motorway Police Multan Ch Ghulam Jaffar stressed the need on Thursday for making traffic education part of school syllabus, saying it would make the kids disciplined since the day first.

Addressing a traffic seminar here at Sui Gas office, he added that we could become a highly organized and disciplined nation provided traffic education was made part of syllabus. He said that the Motorway Police ended VIP culture and brought the ratio of accidents down to a considerable level. He told the Sui Gas workers that the performance of Motorway Police Help Line 130 was evaluated on fortnightly basis. “It is imperative to keep the performance of this service up to the mark and keep them ready to help out commuters in case of any accident on highways,” he added.

He said that four schools were set up by the Motorway Police in Multan, Bahawalpur, Khanewal and Dera Ghazi Khan on the order of IG Motorway Police. “The students passing out of these schools will abide by traffic laws and drive carefully,” he hoped. He said that the Multan school was given the status of model school.

Speaking on this occasion, General Manager Sui Northern Gas Rasheed Arshad said that the drivers of the company were given strict direction to abide by traffic laws. He stressed upon the Motorway Police to hold more seminars for creating awareness on traffic laws.

Earlier, Inspector Hassan Bhatti informed the participants of the seminar about traffic laws. PRO Motorway Police Kashif Rahim Bhutta was also present on this occasion.
