Crackdown against illegal number plates

KARACHI: The Sukkur Excise and Taxation department and district police have jointly launched a massive crackdown on fancy, fake and illegal number plates, besides taking action against unregistered vehicles in the Sukkur.

This was decided in a meeting chaired by SSP Sukkur Syed Asad Raza here on Monday. A team has been constituted which will take action against violators in different areas of the city, especially at the entry and exit points.

The SSP suggested that in order to initiate a crackdown in the domain of vehicle registration and issuance of unauthorized license plates, it was essential for the departments to coordinate with each other to initiate work from the grassroots level to create processes in the departments.

He directed the traffic police to take action against violators of traffic rules in accordance with the law and keep a vigilant eye on suspicious vehicles.

While stressing the need for making people aware rather than fining and issuing them tickets, the SSP said that he had directed the traffic police to educate citizens instead of ticketing.
