Since 2007, over 50 expensive cars, trucks, and motorcycles belonging to the Peshawar Traffic Police and Civil Defence have become inoperable as a result of the department’s failure to provide adequate maintenance.
Furthermore, the responsible officials failed to repair even the minor problems in these vehicles in order to maintain them in service, as a result of which they became unusable as they rusted away on the premises of this department. It has also been stolen the tyres and other parts of these automobiles as well.
Furthermore, the situation has deteriorated to the point where the market value of these automobiles, which were previously valued in the millions of rupees, is now measured in thousands of rupees instead of millions.
An official of the Peshawar Traffic Police Department, on the other hand, has stated that the cars are not inoperative because the department is still operating them.
