Pakistan’s cricket captain, Babar Azam, has grabbed headlines, not for his on-field exploits but for an incident on the Lahore motorway. While driving his Audi, Babar was intercepted by the National Highway Motorway Police (NHMP) on suspicion of a potential traffic violation.
Based on local news sources, Babar received a penalty from the Motorway Police for exceeding the speed limit. Throughout the encounter, the cricketing star showcased exemplary patience, acknowledging the accountability that accompanies his celebrity status.
Previous Run-In at Liberty Chowk
This isn’t Babar’s first brush with traffic officials. The batting maestro faced a minor hiccup in May when excise officers at Liberty Chowk in Lahore flagged him down. The issue at hand? The numerals on his vehicle’s license plate were smaller than the prescribed standard size.
Acting on their commitment to upholding the law, the officers advised Babar to switch to a regulation-compliant number plate. They also took a moment to inspect Babar’s vehicular documents, ensuring everything from registration to tax payments was in order. In both instances, Babar’s demeanour remained commendable, underscoring his pleasant and cooperative attitude.
