Unsung heroes

This refers to the letter ‘Traffic trouble’ (May 12) by Zafar Iqbal. It is discouraging to see that the writer has painted a gloomy and dismal picture of traffic wardens. Traffic wardens are well-equipped with modern education and carry out their duty with dedication. Even in this unbearable heat, they can be seen standing under the scorching sun performing their duties. VIP movement in Lahore has now become a routine. How can a warden have the time to play games on his mobile when every moment he is getting a call to be alert and make arrangements for the VIP protocol to pass?

Ambulances are on Lahore roads 24/7. This requires traffic wardens to be alert all the time and make way for these vehicles. Against their tireless work, they obtain a paltry salary and have no prospects of promotion. They work under harsh working conditions, exposed to dangerous smoke and dust. It is disappointing that we never think about how these officers are performing their duty. We sit in air-conditioned offices and criticise them while sitting in our AC cars.
