Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi was fined by Motorway Police for breaking the law. Afridi was traveling from Lahore to Karachi when he was fined for over-speeding.
Afridi paid Rs.1500 as the penalty for breaking the traffic rule. He also appreciated the Motorway Police for not favoring him because he is a famous sports personality. “The law is equal for everyone,” he said.
Later the cricketer took selfies with the police personnel. Responding to the news, Shahid Afridi said: “Good to interact with a polite staff at @NHMPofficial and I found them very professional. Also, my humble suggestion is we have very good highways, the speed allowed should be more than 120kph!.”

Shahid Afridi is famous for his powerful hitting as a batter for which he even earned the title of ‘Boom Boom Afridi’.
120kmph is around 70mph which is the same speed rule for the Uk motorway, plus it’s not just about good roads it’s about road safety, how many Pakistanis actually put seatbelts on, or have their children in proper cars seats!
