The ten rules for driving on Pakistan’s roads

34 1,213

It is a funny place this country we call home, most of the time, it is said that every motorists is for himself and after driving through various Parts of Pakistan, I have finally come up with some golden rules which everyone should know.  You should memorize these by heart. You can even print them and paste it everywhere so that people can see and benefit from these rules. The traffic police should incorporate these rules in their tests and anyone who doesn’t remember any one of these rules should be banned for life. If you follow these rules you are the DON of the Pakistani roads. No one will dare mess with you. Read, remember and follow these rules!

  1. When uncertain about a situation, Always use the HORN. The louder the better. The car with the loudest ear-drum busting horn has the right to run on the road.
  2. It is acceptable to make a sharp left/right turn across 3 lanes if you suddenly realize you do not need to go through an underpass/road etc. Other vehicles should understand your intentions and “Majbooriz”.
  3. In a road accident, the one with the bike or cheaper vehicle has the people’s sympathy and wins regardless of the situation. If a woman is involved people will always side with her and many “Bhais” will pop up to help her.
  4. Going about 500 meters on wrong way is acceptable if it saves you about one km of traveling or 2 minutes of your life.
  5. Driving without a driving license or drunk driving is fine, if you are the SON of a bureaucrat or your “Chacha” is a well-known political figure.
  6. Bikes/Chingchis/Rickshas are exempted from all laws of the road. They may overtake you from any side and if they scratch your vehicle they are to be exempted because they are “Ghareeb admi”.
  7. At a “Chowk/Chorungi”(Intersection) if you do not move your car 0.01 second after the green light, the drivers before you have the right to HONK and abuse you, even beat you up to a pulp.
  8. If you do not write “Maa ki Dua” behind your car, you will have to be answerable to Allah on the Day of Judgment. Ignore “Baap ka pesa and mehnat”.
  9. It is the responsibility of every boy to stop at a girls college with his speakers on “Amplifier” and mark his presence in front of the girls. It should not be considered immodest and cheap.
  10. A Pedestrian has no right to walk on the road because he/she does not own any form of transport and should be considered the lowest of the lows.

Follow these rules and you are a successful driver of Pakistan.

    easy there man, seems like you're fed up with driving in pk… though whatever you stated is right, but it has a rather very serious side along with the humor, because this is getting worse day by day. And for rule 3,5,7, all I can say is, 'kiyaa baat hai' 😛

  3. Omer Naseem says

    Rule 1 demands more concern 😛

  4. Umer Habib says

    1 more ……………………………..ager ap ki gari mehange hai to app bachaein
    ………………………………………….ager dosray ki mengi hai to wo bachaey

    Nice observation and along with this there is lots more to Pakistani traffic, all about changing lanes , not giving others way and be stuck together when road narrows down. Plus parking cars in streets and getting vanished for some time till lots of traffic builds up and stuck. Plus taking it offensively if a car overtakes, plus then flickering a car with high beam even knowing vehicle in front have heavy traffic in front of it which is moving fast, then lots and lots and lots more.

    show pae araha hae ???

  7. Imtiaz Ahmad says

    Agar gari main ap akelay ja rahay hain to kabi kissi say panga na lo but if you r 4 or 5 then do whatever u want (every panga is 100% ur right)

  8. Mujtaba Abbas says

    Omer Naseem I'm not fed up, just summarized the general experience of our roads 🙂

  9. Mujtaba Abbas says

    Yea, After writing 10 rules, i realized i could write 10 or even 20 more rules that you have pointed out rightfully 😛

  10. Mujtaba Abbas says

  11. Zaeema Aman says

  14. Usman Haider Sheikh says

    and i do give way to Pedestrian in need of it(women, old persons) even if i have to stop a few cars behind me, but those who annoy me(who think they r superman, getting hit wont effect them), love to scare the hell out ov them by speeding(if circumstances allow me to do it safely).

  15. Saqib Khan says

    cheapest post thread ever seen. This is our youth, who don't have something serious to concern, rather they make fun of serious situations. Doesno't matter , whatever the situaion you described is right or not, but you shouldn't encourage these shity rules here. You guys are sleeping in Dianosur ear who had died million years ago.kj nhi ho skta tm logo ka

    Humour/Funny posts are alien terms for you bro.. I feel for you.. 🙂

  24. Mujtaba Abbas says

    Youth and every other motorist on the road.. And thanks 🙂

  25. Saqib Khan says

    Murtaza Abbas , what ever iam , but at least better than you man. You are idiot and now proved your self as an idiot. Instead of feel sorry , you guys are proud of blaming country for any thing. You cannot your brother for that act., just make yourself busy licking foreign countries asses.Stop it and do some thing otherwise shup your mouth about country on social media sites.

  26. Saqib Khan says

    Maheen Javed Its absolutely not lost and i enjoy humour which is unbiased. Just look at the way he started this post" The funny place what we call home" what does that mean? but i know you wont understand as you, yourself raised and born in UK. But I am happy that you are not in Pakistan, in deed we don't even want you here. Just stay there.

  27. Mohammad Fahad says

    So it means i should carry a handgun with me on the roads, if i come across any of these above mentioned illiterate scumbags i would shoot them to death !!

  28. Mujtaba Abbas says

    Good luck in killing 99% of the drivers on road :p
