    do the poor people have any other option? do we have a efficent public transport system? tube/train/tram or any other mass transit project? feul prices are out of the reach of common man so naturally people have to travel from one place to another staying within their own means you can’t expect all to pay exorbitant fares charged by taxis… unless we get a cheaper and reliable public transport system this will continue to be a common sight….

    These ppl are saving money bcoz our prime minister says that an individual in Pak. is earning 850 dollar a month.

    I dont know if an average person earns that much money even in a year.

    What the traffic police supposed to do. Throw a stone at them. Or start running after the bike?
    Traffice police has no powers and no respect.

    our prime minister says that an individual in Pak. is earning 850 dollar a month

    That fool is not telling us the value our currency has lost in 7 years and the inflation rate that is up. The end result by such calculation is simple: The poor is being screwed the Rich is getting comfortable (The imported cars, the high rise buildings etc)

    the $850 is an average.. when you compare that the rich are earning >100000 and the poor the $850 is an average.. when you compare that the rich are earning >100000 and the poor

    This scene is getting frequent these days. Although I have seen 3 guys riding a bike many times (even did that myself) but now 2 guys and one lady or two ladies with one guy are travelling on bike. Couple of weeks back a bike was runned down by a dumper near bait-al-mukkaram masjid, it had three passengers, 2 male and 1 female, all adults. Two of them were killed on spot

    Nah, nothing this is nothing compared to the world record. I saw 9 people on a bike doing a Wheelie for the guiness record.

    Well…. I hate all the stuff what our PM or other concerning ppl say that Pakistan has an average income per head of _____$s/annum…what the heck man….Its obviusly an average…..PM must have said that how much of the 160millions have no source of income, how much of these dont have any supporting for their food, clothing and life!!!!

    PAKISTAN BELONGS TO THE INDUSTRIALISTS, POLITICIANS, AND EXECUTIVES…..The rest are morons to take birth in Pakistan….
