Pakistan motorway is the state of the art multiple lanes, high-speed roads for making the journey of people opportune. The operation, maintenance and repair come under the National Highway Authority. The strict laws and rules are applied and everyone should obey with it. The one who disobeys the rules and laws which are defined strongly by the authority will be fined and it will be according to the level of misdemeanor.
Almost, more than 1000 Kilometers of Motorway is in operation. There are several automobile repair cars which are patrolling on the motorway and the police are alert as well as helpful. On previous Saturday I was traveling with my father on the motorway from Lahore to Islamabad, during the Journey I had become conscious that I am short of fuel and eventually my car had stopped. The vehicle of patrolling police in the nearby area arranged petrol immediately for my vehicle which helped me to reach the petrol pump near Bhera Service Area. I praise the authority for their efforts in training the NHA personnel to such an extent that they prove to be helpful for the common masses.
The one thing which is really unsatisfactory is that at the toll plaza from where vehicle exits the motorway, nobody perceives the queue which results in the creation of huge bottleneck, perhaps, create multifarious problems for the travelers. It acts as a difficulty for the ambulance; it gets stuck in the toll plaza area which is dangerous for the patients in an emergency. Some of the people are residing in the suburbs of the main city like Lahore, They adopt the motorway to reach their destination on time but due to this difficulty they are unable to arrive at their respected places on time. The huge bottleneck of vehicles is more vulnerable to the terrorist attacks as well as unpleasant accidents.
Few effective measures must be taken by the authority to control such problem, which includes proper dividers placed and police personnel must be deputed at least one mile apart from the toll plaza so the commuters can observe the queue effectively. Anyone who attempts to break the line or breaks the law must be fined heavily because if one car will break the queue everyone will try to follow it. The heavy vehicle should not be allowed to switch from low-speed to the high-speed lane. The road widening should be done at the toll plaza with multiple entrances and exit points.
The travelers should follow the queue properly and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead near the exit point. It will prevent any accident of vehicles. The electronic Toll collection exit points must be at one side of the road so the vehicles registered for that do not enter in the queue of unregistered vehicles.
If this problem is solved the motorway will become perfect, and people will not have to wait so long at toll plaza. It will perhaps, become not be less than a heaven for the travelers.
