Traffic Rules Voilations Fine

This table provides a detailed overview of the existing and revised fine amounts for various traffic violations, including newly inserted violations, along with the corresponding percentage increases where applicable.

These revisions aim to enhance road safety and compliance with traffic regulations. NHMP’s efforts are centered on ensuring safer roadways and discouraging traffic violations for the well-being of all road users.

In related news, the toll tax for the Lahore-Islamabad (M2) motorway underwent an adjustment last month, resulting in a 10 percent increment. This adjustment aligns with a 20-year agreement between the National Highway Authority (NHA) and MS/More, an affiliate of the Frontier Works Organization (FWO), established in 2014.

These developments reflect the government’s commitment to improving road infrastructure and ensuring the responsible use of roadways for the benefit of all citizens.
