The department issued fines to 59,409 motorcyclists during the past two months for not wearing helmets. A spokeswoman for ICTP stated that the department also fined 12,589 cars and bikes for having illegal license plates.
IGP Islamabad, Dr. Nasir Akbar Khan, directed that particular efforts be made to guarantee that the city’s traffic system is exemplary in terms of ensuring the abidance of the law.
Chief Traffic Officer (CTO), Dr. Mustafa Tanveer, praised the efforts of the force and stated that an aggressive campaign, as directed by IGP Islamabad, is currently underway to guarantee a safe road environment in the city.
The IGP instructed the authorities to:
- Ensure that traffic rules and regulations are adhered to by everyone, regardless of status or rank
- Be calm and courteous when issuing traffic infraction fines to road users

According to IGP’s orders, special squads have been deployed at several locations to enforce traffic laws against violators, including motorcyclists and those using unlicensed and non-standard number plates.
