Recognizing the inherent dangers posed by underage drivers, Naqvi has also appealed to parents to refrain from allowing their underage children to operate vehicles or motorcycles. The tragic incident occurred in the Defence Phase 7 area, where a family faced a devastating collision with a vehicle driven by a teenage boy who reportedly lost control due to reckless driving. Witnesses noted that such irresponsible driving was a common occurrence among affluent children in the area.

The impact of the collision was severe, causing the victims’ vehicle to overturn and sustain extensive damage. In light of this unfortunate incident, Naqvi’s directive aims to address the broader issue of underage driving and prevent similar tragedies in the future.
