The Pakistan Bureau of Statistics in 2020 – 2021 reported a total number of 201 road traffic accidents in Islamabad. Out of these, 128 were fatal. With a 64 percent fatality rate, the nation’s capital’s roads are some of the most dangerous in the country. To make our commute safer, the Capital City Police have adopted a no-nonsense approach.
In a methodical approach, the Capital Police has identified those roads which are more prone to overspeeding. Here, the speed limit has been set lower than the other roads in the capital. Those who violate these limits will get served with e-challans which will be delivered to their homes.
Here is the latest speed limit chart:
|Roads/Highways||LTV Speed Limit (Km)||HTV Speed Limit (Km)||Build Up Area|
|Murree Road||80||65||Bharaku 30|
|Kahuta Road||60||60||Sihala Bazar 30|
|Street Roads (Near Schools, Hospitals)||30||25|
That is it. We hope this updated piece of information will help you become a responsible driver on the capital’s roads. Drive within the given speed limits and be a responsible Pakistani driver.
