The campaign was announced by the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), Iqbal Dara, Chief of the Karachi Traffic Police, back in December of 2020.

DIG Dara informed that as per the orders issued by the Sindh High Court, a notice has been provided to the public informing that the use of pressure horns, unauthorized registration number plates, fancy number plates, tinted glass, revolving lights, bar lights, and unauthorized sirens, is banned in Karachi.

A deadline was also given to the public to remove the aforementioned items from their vehicles before January 4, 2021. Since that day, the authorities have taken action against a large number of motorists that were found violating the notice.

  • According to traffic police, any number plate that is not issued by govt. is deemed as “Fancy”. They can give you Chalan even if you have normal number plate but not the govt. issued one. The govt. should first ensure it gives number plates to all who have applied and then go for these measures

  • it’s a good drive, all the additional insignias like judge, Advocate, MPA, MNA, Senator, Party flags should all be removed. Bar light is a new menace its import should be banned. And if someone really wants to irradicate this evil from society such shops and individuals should be brought to book who make fancy plates and provide police lights and sirens to civilians.
