ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: In the past 12 years, there have been 23 pileup accidents on motorways with nine accidents taking place within the past two years, causing 29 deaths, 146 injuries, approximately Rs 12 million loss and damage to 176 vehicles.

On the Directions of IG Khalid Mahmood, the National Highways and Motorway Police (NHMP) studied past trends and introduced various new initiatives that helped ensure the safety of drivers and passengers during the fog season.

However, under directions of IG Khalid Mahmood, the NHMP adopted new technologies that increased the efficiency of normal operations and also provided additional support that was critical to ensuring commuter safety during turbulent weather.

Additionally, the NHMP also launched the Fog Journey Planner which helped commuters plan their travel more carefully, considering historical data of fog.

The real-time advisories and detailed closures of interchanges were also issued through Electronic and social media, the NHMP website and the 130 helpline.

By improving communications that resulted in timely advisories and subsequent closure of motorways, using next-gen thermal cameras to anticipate driving conditions, conducting safety briefings at various toll plazas, and moving large numbers of affected vehicles in co-ordinated cavalcades, the NHMP was able to achieve its target of zero pileup accidents in the 2022-23 fog season.

The National Highways and Motorway Police said that it remains committed to ensuring safety and commuter confidence on Pakistan’s national highways and motorways.
