THE country’s first set of traffic wardens have been told they must be prepared to work at all hours of the day, to ensure motorists obey the law. “Law enforcement must begin with you, the traffic wardens on our roads, streets and highways. I want to see you dealing with illegal parking and illegal over-taking.

“At 3.30 am on the Priority Bus Route (PBR) there is no traffic and drivers are still illegally overtaking. It is frightening because this is the norm; therefore you must bear in mind that you may have unusual hours. You must wean yourself from the culture of working teaching hours, 8 am to 4 pm. You are not teachers,” Minister of Works and Transport Jack Warner said as he advised 87 men and women as they began their first day of traffic warden training on Wednesday.

The future traffic wardens were told what their main duties would be outlined by Assistant Commissioner of Police (Mobile), Wayne Richards.

“To provide particular support to the Police Service in road traffic policing, and help reduce the serious traffic congestion experienced in town centres across the country. I wish to also impress upon you trainees, as pioneers of the traffic warden system, the important role you would play in bringing law and order to our society. You must strive always to engage professionally with members of the public, whom you have taken the decision to serve,” Richards said.
