As per the details, the police issued 20 tickets to people who were using fancy number plates on their vehicles. A police official while talking to the media said that the authority had warned drivers with illegal or fancy number plates in advance, however, they continued using such number plates and that’s why Karachi Traffic Police conducted the drive in the city.
