One-wheeling trend on rise ahead of Independence Day

ISLAMABAD: The dangerous practice of one-wheeling by the young bikers is seen on the busy roads of the twin cities, putting the riders’ lives at risk.Young motorcyclists, mostly without helmets, could be seen doing one-wheeling on the roads of the twin cities, including Murree Road, Kashmir Highways, 9th Avenue, 7th Avenue, Committee-Chowk, Nawaz Sharif Park Road, and the Islamabad Expressway. Suleman, a car driver, while talking to the media personnel said, “The youngsters not only endanger their own lives but also pose a serious threat to others by doing one-wheeling. They also interrupt the flow of traffic,” he added. He said that these young one-wheelers were often seen performing dangerous stunts, which create problems for others during driving. Although the traffic police have arrested some of these motorcyclists from different areas of the city, but this trend is increasing every day, particularly on the occasion of Independence Day, he said.A group of people urged the authorities to take effective measures to stop this dangerous trend. An official of the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) said that the ITP had held a number of bikers due to one-wheeling and bike stunts and challan tickets were also being issued to the violators. The official, however, added that it was difficult for the ITP personnel to end one-wheeling in the capital as bikers mostly succeed to dodge them. He said that the ITP was also carrying awareness campaign to stop these activities.
