Islamabad Police has come up with an interesting way to encourage motorists into following traffic rules.
They have started a Good Citizen Patrol Unit that is aimed at appreciating law-abiding citizens of the capital city. To encourage good driving habits, they have started awarding good drivers with a ‘good citizen sticker’ along with coffee mugs and other gifts.
Under this initiative, the police have dedicated a unit that patrols the roads of the capital on a daily basis. It takes into account the cars that are observing the proper laws.
Whenever the police observes a person who is abiding by the traffic rules, it stops them and thanks them on the spot for being a ‘good citizen’.
It further gives citizens a special ‘good citizen’ sticker to paste it on their car windshield along with the coffee mugs and other gifts.
This is an interesting initiative to acknowledge law-abiding citizens while encouraging the others to do the same.
The Islamabad Police has been quite active in maintaining the law and order situation in the city. Only recently, its Criminal Investigation Agency (CIA) has arrested 10 individuals while recovering Ice, mobile phones, hashish, gold ornaments, weapons, and stolen property valued at Rs.773,000 altogether.
