Weather predictions dictating traffic?

Light traffic on a saturday night has almost become a myth. It’s become unthinkable on a saturday night that one would make a round trip from Gulistan e Jauhar to North Nazimabad in under an hour. Tonight though we were in for a surprise. Breezed our way through. Looks like the weather is dictating traffic, for tonight atleast. A lot of people I know had cancelled/rescheduled their plans because there was a rain prediction for today.

Anyone else notice the light traffic tonight?

    Yes, the traffic was light on Sat evening all around Clifton / Defence area.. I went to Park Towers around 10:00 p.m and I parked outside on the opposite side of the road coz I was sure there won’t be any parking inside. I was surprised to find sufficient parking available and only the ‘local’ crowd was hanging around. This afternoon there was hardly anyone at Sea View despite being a Sunday.

    my experience was quite different i was at park towers too around 10’ish and the car park near chen one and car showroom were full and so was the underground car park and as usual ppl were busy buying tonnes of stuff frm sale at chen one so life was quite normal apart frm the bumpy roads and huge traffic jams near do talwar

    Last night The Forum was easily reachable (although there was some water though, parking wasnt a problem) and Zamzama around midnight was neither a problem.

    But then again, not sure how the traffic there around that time is normally. But I do know that The Forum normally busier is then it was last night.

    Finally something good out of all the rain!

    I did notice a lot of people stocking up on groceries. The weather is cloudy again today…
