In Hyderabad, the Sindh High Court (SHC) has ordered law enforcement to crack down on private vehicles that employ flashing lights, sirens, hooters, tinted windows, and flashy licence plates. On the orders of Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Peer Muhammad Shah, the department started this drive on Monday.
During the day-long operation around the city, a police spokeswoman told the media that officials acted against a large number of cars and amassed about Rs 300,000 in fines.
He claimed that the law enforcement is working together to reduce such offences. The official further stated that special teams had been stationed for inspection at the city’s gates and exits.
According to the spokeswoman, it is against the law for private vehicles to utilise the emergency flashers and horns. The authorities are preparing a crackdown on stores that sell these things, he added.
The DIG told the SSP Amjad Ahmed Shaikh and other police personnel to take legal action against dealers and private cars with the aforementioned accessories during a meeting last week.
