Risking your life at night

Let the wardens finish their day-long duties and the general rush of traffic get off the streets, Lahore’s roads become freeways of the wild. One can’t help notice the utter disrespect for traffic laws and a complete disregard for other travellers’ safety at night as┬ámost of the drivers just don’t care to bow before traffic signals.

This particular scene was snapped at about 2:00 am at Kalma Chowk in which cars are seen violating the red light collectively and quite bluntly.

    yeah you are 100% right, when driving in the night, becareful even if your signal is GREEN. btw, this happens everywhere in Pakistan, though Isb got a nice traffic police now, and it works

    Oh yeah we also have fairly the best traffic police in Pakistan but they are not on duty at night. Does Islamabad Traffic Police serve at night??

    in the Pak psyche, traffic – like all other – laws are something that only apply to other people- especially those less powerful than you…ergo, by violating the law you are (once again) proving your power!
