Cheat Sheet for Traffic Signs in Pakistan With Urdu, English Meanings

Pakistan is a well-ruled country. But unfortunately, we Pakistanis are expert in breaking those rules especially traffic signs. Traffic system in Pakistan is destroyed just because we don’t follow the traffic signs install on the sides on every road.

Traffic Signs in Pakistan:

This traffic situation in Pakistan is getting weird day by day just because most of us even don’t know about traffic signs and what they stand for. The government of Pakistan is not installing new traffic signs with Urdu meanings on the sides of roads in various cities for public safety.

Contributing to the positive vision of Govt, I’m creating this cheat sheet for traffic signs in Pakistan with both Urdu and English meanings.
