ISLAMABAD: According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, nearly half of Pakistanis (45%), who drive, opine that the existing penalties for breaking road safety laws in the country should be increased.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces who answered in affirmative about driving at least one kind of vehicle, was further asked.
