ISLAMABAD: The Senate’s standing committee on communications has Monday deliberated the whopping increase in traffic fines on the violation of motorway rules wherein the highways authority officials said running red-light will cost violators Rs10,000 penalty, ARY News reported.

The committee member Senator Kamil Ali Agha said the fines are for the reform of the people and asked the National Highways Authority to explain why these have been hiked so exorbitantly, to which the officials said if people find fines so hefty, they should stop violating traffic laws.

The standing committee chairman Senator Prince Omer Ahmedzai said that the issue needs to be discussed as a standalone agenda for which a sub-committee shall be constituted and thus he strung up a three-member sub-committee on the traffic fine hike matter.
