    KARACHI: 18 racing bikes, three cars seized in Defence




    By Our Staff Reporter

    KARACHI, Feb 12: Police flattened the tyres of over 300 motorcycles since late Saturday night to discourage the youngsters from race on thoroughfares of Defence.

    On Sunday, police impounded 18 motorcycles and three cars which were modified to enhance their performance. The two-wheelers and four-wheelers are modified by the youth to participate in the race, which has become a weekly affair in DHA areas.

    Three youngsters had lost their lives last Sunday in Defence Phase VIII during motorcycle race.

    “There is no particular track or road, where these youngsters seek thrill by racing. They start up at any of long and clean stretch of roads which are plenty full in Phase VIII,” Clifton TPO Imran Shaukat said.

    On Saturday, we had a meeting with the DHA administration in which we have requested them to build speed breakers so that roads could not be used for race, TPO Clifton added.

    So far at least six people have lost their lives in these races, police said.

    These are not speed brackers

    They are car breakers

    I dont know why they made such speed brakers. Old Japanese Assembled cars like Civic 85 and CVharade 85 are not much high from gound and these brakers ruin these cars.

    Track is certainly better than street racing...and those speed brakers just make things worse. Sometimes you don't see them, and then you get in a big accident!

    A.O.A.

    Dear PakWheeler friends,

    I had highlighted this issue in my much earlier postings here.

    The youngsters spend a fortune modifying
    their cars with the gadgeteries available openly in the market. Obviously they'd like to check the performances thereof.

    Therefore, its about time that some entrepreneurs from the private sector come forward to establish and operate Auto Clubs with adequate testing tracks / areas. It sure will be a lucrative and profit bearing business.

    As Motor Sports is gaining momentum in Pakistan the government will definitely support such projects including provision of land on subsidised rates.

    So its just the matter like "Who'll bell the Cat" It should positively be belled this time...lol

    all you need open land with winding tracks. along with instructors,, the way it happens all the world,, but in pakistan we do things diffirently,, even like playing cricket in a gali when u hit a 6er and break somebody window,,or kite flying in residentail area till dorr kills some motorcyclists or fall from rooftop or electric shocks and burn the whole neighbourhood transformer
    ,,, unless you know the track, you're not good enough to sit behind the wheel." K T

    the only way to prevent the loss of life is to make racing tracks and drag strips...so that the racers can also quinch their thirst...if ur just gonna put ban on or restrict the racers will keep on finding new spots and ways ...so the only solution is to build tracks and drag strips monitered by govt itself

    Well ... its sad to hear about people killed in race ... it will create more problem for Karachi Track ...

    I have seen a lot of bikers going towards defence driving roughly ... police mostly chasing bikers and they wont understand ...

    Speed Breakers are being made at a good pace, and i really support them, why ? cause you dont have to Break Traffic Signal on each and every intersection in defence area then and Most importantly Lives will be Saved !

    @tauseen...
    modded cars are illegal in many countries now!...so laws stating that aftermarket upgrades are illegal can be created!...
    But i do hope that the Road authorites create a track instead of taking the measure listed above!

    Is se sub khush rahain ***!

    @c123pk..

    I agree with you...but only if speedbreakers were speedbreakers...

    right now the only jobs these speedbreakers are doing are of spoiling shock-absorbers and cracking exhaust pipes!
