Highway Authorities Fail to Implement Decision to Allow Heavy Bikes on Motorways

Motorcyclists with heavy bikes or any 600CC bike were given permission to use the motorways in April after the Islamabad High Court had given them the green signal however the decision hasn’t been implemented yet.

During the hearing of a case on Monday, the court gave both the National Highway and Motorways Police till December 15 to carry out the verdict. Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani told a motorway representative that the bikers have been given the go-ahead to drive on motorways.

The bench added that they would initiate contempt proceedings against Inspector-General motorways if the verdict is not carried out after the given date. It is pertinent to point out that the verdict was given on April 19.

While the permission has been given, it has multiple conditions attached to it. The first being that the NHMP will issue cards to any biker who wants to drive on the motorway; these cards won’t be provided to anyone under the age of 30.

The authority has outlawed one wheeling, pillion riding, and rash driving. If a biker’s card is rescinded, then they will have to wait for six months before being eligible for another card.

  • Why not allow for everyone?
    What’s the purpose of highway? if not utilizing?
