This is not the first time a political figure has been fined in Pakistan.

Last week, the Motorway police slapped National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq with a fine due to exceeding speed limit on M2 motorway.

The motorway police intercepted the two vehicles belonging to Sadiq heading to Islamabad from Lahore near Khanqa Dogran for violating the traffic rules and imposed a fine of Rs2,500.

Similarly, on August 2, police in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa capital city fined a member of provincial assembly for violating traffic rules.

Zareen Gul, a member of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, was stopped by a traffic warden in Peshawar when he ran a red light. In the fine, traffic officials mentioned ‘unsafe driving’ as the cause. The fine, worth Rs200, was accepted by the MPA.
