These rickshaws are on the one hand creating hurdles for smooth flow of traffic and on the other hand a great problem for those visiting the areas. A large number of rickshaws are being driven by underage drivers having no license. Traffic police are completely silent and ignoring this serious issue. PRO Attock Police when contacted said that the concerned traffic police staff will be given instructions in this context.
