      Lahore streets greet women traffic wardens

      LAHORE, April 3: Eight women traffic wardens turned up on heavy-duty
      bikes on city's major roads on Thursday for patrolling duty for the
      first time in the history of the country's traffic police.

      Eighty-four wardens, including the eight women, were handed over 250cc
      bikes by city police chief (additional IG) Malik Mohammad Iqbal.

      "We have imparted a 15-day training to eight female wardens in the
      first phase and as many wardens are receiving training in the second
      phase," Chief Traffic Officer SSP Ghulam Mehmood Dogar told Dawn.

      He said that the wardens would patrol The Mall, Jail Road, Gulberg
      Main Boulevard and Defence Main Boulevard in pair. They will regulate
      traffic, help and educate people and issue tickets.

      "The main focus of the women wardens will be on extending emergency
      help to commuters, especially female and children," he added.

      He said that separate beats comprising different sectors had been
      allocated to the women wardens.

      Mr Dogar believed that the presence of women wardens on roads would
      change attitude and behaviour of commuters.

      He said that six lady wardens were already patrolling on CG-125 bikes.

      There are 134 female traffic wardens in the traffic police but most of
      them are doing office work.

      The city traffic police have 200 250cc bikes in its fleet of which 84
      have been handed over to the wardens.
