ABBOTTABAD -- The Hazara traffic police have planned to hold computerised driving tests and bike ambulance service.

He said the police had banned the sale of petrol to motorcyclists without helmet, cracked down on motorcyclists doing a wheelie, banned underage biking, cancelled the licences of drivers using drugs, launched a help book, and withdrew 50 per cent challan books, created a the Accident Response Unit, Eagle Squad and launched traffic police for tourists.

The SSP said almost all tasks for traffic management had been successfully implemented across the province and thus, drastically reducing traffic accidents, especially those caused by bikes.
