SHC moved against mirrors-less motorcycles

KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday issued notices to the Sindh government and Deputy Inspector General (DIG) traffic and sought a report on the law pertaining exempting side mirrors on motorcycles passed by the Sindh government in 1969.

A high court bench headed by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar heard a petition challenging the government law. The court sought a report on the next hearing of the case. During the hearing, the petitioner stated that legislation in 1969 exempted motorcycles from installing side mirrors. He stated that after wearing a helmet, the motorcyclist does not look around.

The petitioner also said numerous accidents happen daily due to lack of side mirrors of motorcycles. “Many people have died due to the mistake of motorcyclists,” the petitioner said. He said motorcyclists are endangering their own lives and the lives of others. He pleaded the court to declare the law exempting motorcycles from side mirrors as null and void. - PPI min/plugins.php?page=image-map-pro-wordpress
