    If you arrested a man driving his car on wrong side. Then you got to arrest even the police who is driving on wrong side. Every other person drive recklessly and violating traffic law , if there is any. Fifty % car and bike has no beam lights and indicators. So why only one was victimised?? He was scapegoat. Hahaha. I guess so.

    Good job, my suggestion is
    1.his mental capacity need to be assessed
    2.along with fine put penalty point on his driving licence. 3Any traffic law violations must be taken seriously

    Penatly for driving wrong way, 2 years prison or fine of Rs1000/- only???. What a system. What about all the wrong way Police vehicles driving and driving without head lights or indication lights. We r the country where we dont even have lane markings on them. Free will country. This guy who has been arrested please take his blood samples and in case of drug or alcohal indication in his blood sample. His driving license should be revoked for life. DUI “driving under influence” as done in the rest of the world. As no normal person would put his & others life in danger.

    There is nothing mentioned that police went by wrong side !!

    A fine of only Rs1000 is hardly a penalty for such a dangerous (even lfe-threatening!) offense. What a joke! No wonder people break laws with such impunity!

    He will tell in court that he was in emergency and her wife were preganant and in last stage of delevery then court will ask him for his wife evidences then he will provide documented evidence then court will give him relief and grant him bail. Heheheh

    Rs. 100 penalty is enough, but should enforce 100%, make changes in violation of mentality. The theam is taken from Tassawuf.

    Very small fine will encourage more to the same for to be popular on social media. Fine should be license cancel,10 years jail,fine minimum 100000.If under influence of alcohal. more strict punishment.

    Fine should be PKR10,O00, for all car, bikes, rickshaws etc with points marking on licence and subsequent revocation after 2-3 violations. But implementation for all. There should be no deviation for influential, references etc.

    They should fine him according to the car he has. IF he is driving a Honda CIvic then fine should be atleast Rs.10,000
