The National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP) will implement a point-based licensing system. Inspector General (IG) NH&MP Khalid Mahmood has ordered that it be implemented as soon as possible.
The system would leverage the National Driving Licence Database, which holds information on more than eight million driver’s licenses across Pakistan, according to a department official.
The system will assist the agency in enforcing traffic laws against repeat offenders. According to the details, a license’s demerit point limit will be 20. If a person violates the limit twice in two years, their driver’s license will be suspended.
To gather information about each driver’s previous offenses, the National Highways and Motorway Police NH&MP will use the CNIC number, driver’s license number, and mobile phone number.
As part of its #NoMore campaign, the NH&MP has reinforced security procedures to prevent accidents on the highway. The operation will make use of cutting-edge technology such as body-worn cameras, a variable sign message (VSM) system, surveillance drones, and the most up-to-date speed detection equipment, among other things.
The department will apply a stronger monitoring regime to maintain traffic safety, according to the IG NH&MP, who hopes that individuals will comply with the department.
