Pakistan’s Viral Car Smuggling Video Will Shock the Companies That Built the Cars

We’ve all seen movies such as ‘Gone In Sixty Seconds’ and the entire ‘Fast And the Furious’ where there are loud and exhilarating action sequences, loads of glamour and the people involved in the heist are supposedly the good guys who get away with physically impossible thefts like they’re a walk in the park.

What’s even more ironic is that the law, more often then not, ends up favoring them as if they’ve done absolutely nothing wrong.

A recent video that surfaced on twitter, will convince people that real-life crimes of such nature are a lot different, a lot less glamorous and a lot more dangerous.

In the video, four cars are seen being smuggled into Pakistan through what seems to be some mountain range in Balochistan. The four cars being smuggled are all Toyota’s, with a Vitz or a Yaris leading the pack, an Aqua right behind, an 8th gen E110 Corolla on the third, and a Probox on the last.

Cross-border car smuggling or any other illegal exchange is a high class felony in any country, owing to which, the smugglers usually avoid the main routes, so as to steer clear of the check-posts and avoid getting caught on surveillance cameras. Particularly in Balochistan, there are only few paved routes that can be taken by the motorists, all of whom have numerous checkpoints. But that doesn’t stop the smugglers from carrying out their activity.

The smuggled cars are evidently transported to their destination through the mountains. The cars in the video are ordinary street cars, yet still, they’re being driven on top of the rocks in a way that would put both, the toughest of off-road trucks and the most daring off-road enthusiasts to utter shame. One tiny mistake, and it would be a terrible day for the car and the very last day, perhaps, for the driver.

If we put the driving skills of these individuals aside for a moment, that are admirable to say the least, we’d realize that there’s every reason to discourage smuggling of cars. Although much less than before, smuggling is still persistent across various regions of Pakistan, especially in Balochistan and a few regions in KP. Not only do the smugglers put the local market and economy out of balance, but do so while dancing on the edge of a grave.

By saying ‘No’ to car smuggling and other cross-border crimes, we can save not only the economy and the image of the country, but also help mitigate the prospects of people putting their lives in danger for a crime.

  • Where are Law Enforcement Agencies of Pakistan. They don’t have Ground based Radar Systems, drones to monitor the Border Crossing.? Or they are doing home office due to Corona?.
    Secondly shame on all the Corrupt Mafia sitting in KP and Balochistan that register these vehicles and destroy the finances of Pakistan.

    • Un ko siasat or property business say fursat milay to shayad apna kaam krain. Wo sab kuch kar rahay hain aaj kal ( apnay kaam kay ilawa).

    • Exactly, very good point. So many press conferences by the ‘security agencies’ claiming to fence the Pak-afghan border, upgrading security infrastructure…..etc etc, all seems pretty damn BS. Just look how casually these guys are moving there vehicles in broad day light and even making a video of it.
      SHAME SHAME SHAME.

      (Oh but but DHA Peshawar coming soon.)

    • Pakistanis gave every logic to justify corruption. Even a Doodh Wala who adds water in the milk justify the addition of water in the milk by some logic. Ask any Government officer who takes bribes and he will tell you the reason for it.

      What is wrong is wrong. What is against the law is against the law. No one should justify any Illegal practice by any reason. PERIOD.

      • Sir ji, he is not justifying the smuggling. Instead, the underlying cause is being mentioned. Zabaan chalany k saath saath dimagh bhi chala lo.

        • I will rephrase my sentence that
          ” Every person who is breaking the law in Pakistan has the underlying cause for it to justify the wrong doing. ” Ab aap khush hain?

          • On a serious note, jurm hamesha kisi wajah se hota he. Saza dono hi sorat me milay gi aur jurm ko wajah se justify nhe kiya ja sakta. Lekin Jurm rokany k saath saath un wujohaat ko bhi khatam karna zarori he. Bus itni baat smjhana maqsad tha.

  • Human traffickers transport people in very poor condition wooden boats over rough seas and disasters happen. You can put any car through rough abuse, the off road types not only take the beating but keeps the passengers safe. Just because someone is trying to driving a family car on a very rough track doesn’t mean that car will be same at the end.
