    Default Travelling with Bicycle Car Rack on M2

    Dear All,

    Advice needed. In all over the world, bicycle car racks are used to travel to places. These racks are quite sturdy and are approved by the relevant safety authorities. Yet still our motorway police does not allow people to travel with these racks.

    How can one get permission from traffic and motorway police for us to travel with car racks and what should be the way forward to get this permission?

    Need some expert opinions here.

    motorway police / nha will not permit cars travelling with such racks between Rawalpindi & Lahore motorway, for safety reason and high air pressure changes at salt range stretch. For rest of highway(s) there is no such restriction. please check & verify from Motorway Police RWP

    They allow lousy Bedford trucks trucks with worst drag coefficient and CG at its top when loaded. Yet bike racks not allowed.

    Some education and commonsense needed after the authorities finish their daily weed intake course

    Bedfords are not allowed at motorway 6, 8, & 10 wheelers with time line to catch up dare take the motorway, SALT RANGE up track is a serious muscle flexing challenge for ' TRUCKS & PULLERS '. Over 10 liters of diesel fuel is BURNED away at average by a loaded 6 wheeler in that SMALL stretch of uphill tangent.

    Thanks.
    High air pressure at Salt Range stretch can be a valid reason but a friend even got fined when travelling with the bike even within Lahore which is really irritating. Anyways, will Motorway Police be able to tell the about the possibility of carrying those on GT Road?
