VIP movement & traffic problems

Since our ‘beloved’ president Mr. 10% err Zardari is in town today till another week, the ongoing traffic miseries are certainly on the rise apart from the roads overclouded by the PPP flags and banners; Here are some tips to follow before you start your commute:

– Tune into Traffic Radio RASTA FM 88.8 often and listen to the traffic updates
– Call 24×7 Traffic Helpline 1915 before you leave your home
– Visit RASTA.PK to see the updates on traffic

P.S: My personal experience of 1915 helpline is very good when i called them early today for the first time to check on Mall Road status and the lady operator told me that there were some portions closed due to security but they have been restored 5 minutes before i called. And I had a nice and easy commute to downtown; As per the lady operator, you can also get help if your car breaks down.

    Look at Governor’s House; it gives you impression of a cheap cinema facade these days… Pity!
