If one intends to travel at any time between 5 pm and 7 pm, they can expect to be met with an enormous amount of traffic. However, where there is traffic, there are also wide and well-built roads. There might not be a lot of them but there are some that truly test your car’s limits. Yes, these are the roads in Karachi on which you can really see how fast your car can go.
