Karachi, the metropolitan city of Pakistan is also one of the worst cities for driving a vehicle, according to a study made by a German company, kfzteile24.

The city of light, perhaps having a majority of the area without lights due to prolonged load-shedding, has been placed at 99th position out 100.

Karachi has been placed at 99th position out of total 100 placements. The 100th position is secured by Kolkatta (India), making it THE worst city for driving a vehicle.

The reasons for this positioning are long hour traffic jams, zero parking space in commercial areas, driving on the wrong side of the street as well as driving without a license, are some reasons along with the terrible road conditions which made the cities main and service roads impossible to access because of heavy traffic.

Furthermore, air pollution, noise pollution from horns, improper infrastructures and issue of public transport are some really serious issues which made Karachi earn this rank on the list.

About the Study

The study examined several factors; congestion levels, cost of fuel, average speeds, levels of air pollution, the average cost of parking, public transport options, road quality and the frequency/perception of road rage and accidents and fatalities were some of them.

However, the traffic delays or congestion caused by temporary construction were not taken into account for this study.

Once all factors were researched for 100 cities, a final score was calculated.

Ten Worst Cities To Drive in

Previously, Economic Intelligence Unit had ranked Karachi among the 10 worst cities in the world. Then UN-Habitat earlier ranked Karachi as the worst city in Urban Development.

The rankings made us understand and realize the issues of Karachi that must be addressed and worked out at earliest.

There is clearly zero development on Karachi Circular Railway. The projects of public transport such as Green-line Bus and Orange line are being carried out at a slow pace.

The provincial and federal government announced a lot of packages for Karachi’s improvement and we are waiting for the development to start as soon as possible.

In the past 2 months, PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi announced a Rs. 25 billion packages and CM Murad Ali Shah announced a package of Rs. 12 billion for the development of Karachi’s infrastructure.
