Update on Toll Tax Adjustments

In related news, the toll tax for the Lahore-Islamabad (M2) motorway was adjusted last month, seeing a 10 percent increment.

This adjustment was in line with the 20-year agreement made between the National Highway Authority (NHA) and MS/More, an affiliate of the Frontier Works Organization (FWO), established in 2014.

  • This is indeed a great news. Use of Phone while driving, HID or high beam fine should be minimum 3000. But so far motorway police not very active even I almost regularly saw people driving more than 150 on first lane and despite the speed cameras police never stops them. And most of overspending vehicles are with green registration plates.

  • Increase it more for luxury cars. They are over speeding most of the time. Also Army officers don’t pay fines as they call Military police (MP) and then threaten Motorway police. Make a law that will be applicable to Army officers as well.

  • 750 for over speeding was nothing, i Got Two Challans on same journey! but now i will take care doing over speeding.

  • Every one is trying to loot people and make money. It’s a race keep it up NHMP, many times police is interested in challan rather than required actions. If you are taking so much money automate your set-up also to reduce mishandling of incidents.
