Sir: Lahore being the second largest city of the country and a metropolitan lacks order, especially on the roads. People of the city, having access to better education opportunities than most of Pakistan, do not follow traffic rules. Everyone tries to get ahead, as if it was some sort of a race. Even traffic signals are ignored. This issue should be taken up by the media and educational institutions in the city.

Another similar problem is of keeping the city clean. People throw their garbage anywhere and everywhere, making the city filthy. People complain about the filth, but no one is willing to start cleaning or placing a dustbin in their neighbourhood. Commuters also throw garbage out of their vehicles without thinking about the consequence for others. Such issues must be addressed as a matter of lack of education. Instead of tackling such matters individually, educational institutions should step up and education their students. By doing so, a big problem will be solved and we will have better city to live in.

M Ali, Lahore.
