He said that the traffic police would intensify patrolling in all areas to prevent road accidents, especially in markets and bazaars.
“Ramzan-ul-Mubarak is a sacred month. These days are very important for us. Wardens must pay special attention during last ten days of Ramazan to avoid traffic mess on the roads and in the bazaars. There shouldn’t be any blame that wardens are not performing duties.
To attend the telephone calls during duty timings or standing in groups will not be tolerated” CTO added. He asked the wardens to behave politely with the road users adding that any complaint about misbehaving would not be tolerated.
