Awaam Asks: Motorway Police

January 5, Saturday – 3:50 PM – On my way back from Sargodha to Lahore on the motorway, I saw one of the worst accidents in my life – Near Pindi Bhatian. I could see smoke on the main road from miles away on reaching the spot, there was a car burning in the middle of the road with 2 other cars crushed on the down side of the road. The car burning in the middle of the road had a burnt body besides it totally unattended – there was only a single police car on the spot with no fire-extinguishing apparatus from the scene it was looking that the car was burning for the last 5-10 minutes. The thing that was horrifying was the poor soul burning on the road was absolutely left un-attended. Question: Where was the motorway emergency team even after 10 minutes of the incident ?

    @Suh: Lol!

    Still, what do you think about Motorway Police and its effectiveness in terms of accident response. Any experiences?
