Lahore city administration has decided that rickshaws will be banned on Lahore’s The Mall. In order to control the increasing issue of traffic, the decision has been taken by the Lahore administration to ban rickshaws.
From 1st May, this new order will be implemented. According to the decision taken from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm rickshaws will not be allowed to enter into The Mall. Also, it is pertinent to mention here that motorcycle rickshaws are already banned in the area.
As people go out in numbers to visit The Mall for shopping, enjoying, and having fun, it becomes essential that traffic is controlled in order to avoid any mishap or accident.
Also, parking has become a hazard for many as Malls are usually jammed package, especially during sales time. Thus this decision taken by city administration does make sense.
However, this does mean that the people who use Rickshaws to commute to and forth The Mall will get affected. They might have to walk a distance to find any Rickshaw for commuting.
