Traffic mess

This refers to the nuisance of traffic jam. Traffic jam at Natipora juncture is getting worse day by day. Every day we get stuck in traffic jam for hours leading to the drastic outcome for we cannot reach our destination within the stipulated time and the worst part is that gatekeepers at many institutions do not allow us to enter the  educational premises after the reporting time has already been lapsed thus ruining our whole day. We as students are not able to attend even a single class at colleges. The question here arises is who is responsible for the mess. Of course, we the common people. Natipora road is not that wide. But irresponsible drivers overtake each other and make it four lane, that blocks the road completely and the vehicles in opposite directions cannot move a bit. It results in hour-long jam. If we stick to the basics and drive in only one lane, follow traffic rules properly, we won’t face the problem anymore. But the thing is we have lost our moral value. Everyone wants to be super fast and reach quickly to their destinations but we forget that we are creating problem for hundreds of students, patients and office going employees. I know that drivers won't read this article but I'm hopeful that their children would make them understand this and urge them to be more moralistic in their acts.
