He told City news that poor condition of roads is one of the major causes of accidents on that road in Lyari which connects different areas with each other.
There are potholes on the road that make it difficult to travel. This problem of bad roads is quite widespread across the whole country. The condition worsens during and after the monsoon season. The rain further damages the roads. These issues do not need rocket science to be solved.
