Traffic Fines Massively Increased in Islamabad

The Ministry of Interior has issued a notification, announcing an increase in traffic violation fines in Islamabad. The move, which now also targets cyclists, is part of a broader initiative to ensure road safety and strict adherence to traffic regulations.

According to the official notification, fines will now range from Rs. 500 to Rs. 8,000, depending on the severity of the violation. Cyclists, often overlooked in previous regulations, will now face a Rs. 500 fine if they violate traffic signals.

The government has decided to raise traffic penalties after issuing an official notification that emphasizes the need to enforce traffic laws for the safety of all road users.

“This initiative is critical in our ongoing efforts to reduce accidents and promote responsible driving,” a Ministry spokesperson remarked.

Signal violations will cost Rs 2,000. Motorcycles will be fined Rs. 1,000 for one-way violations and underage driving, while cars face charges up to Rs. 2,000 for similar offenses and HTVs up to Rs. 8,000, the notification states.

Tinted glasses, reckless driving, and driving without a license have respective fines of Rs. 1,500, Rs. 2,000, and up to Rs. 8,000 based on the vehicle type. Mobile phone use while driving will result in fines ranging from Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 8,000. Unregistered vehicles, illegal parking, and wrong-way driving also carry penalties.

    • everything is already ruined. ye surkhi powder lagane se hmhra bhayanak chehra tabdeel nhe ho jye ga

    • Agree. Fines should be relative to the value of the vehicle. Make it 1% of the current vehicle value.
      For example a Vigo (major traffics violators of Islamabad) that is worth 1.2 crore rupees should get a fine of 1.2 lakh rupees.

  • Very good step. Should be imed implemented in Punjab too. Also plz challan vehicles who don’t have head lights, tail lights or functional indicators as they pose serious risk to road users.

  • Rules are for everyone. It is observed that drivers of patrolling vehicles do not fasten the seat belt and using bike do not wear helmet. Increase in challan fee of traffic violation is another way to collect money from lower class, lower middle class and middle class people. It is responsibility of every citizen to share objectionable traffic violation pics and videos for improving in system. Thanks to all citizens.
