With increasing congestion on the roads of Lahore and paucity of public transport, a large number of girls and women have opted to start riding their own two-wheelers besides cars.
This prompted Lahore traffic police to once again activate lady warden motorbike squad to develop a feel of security among women riding motorcycles and driving cars in Lahore.
The service was inaugurated by Chief Traffic Police Officer Muntazir Mehdi. In the beginning, a contingent of 25 women traffic wardens has been constituted. The female wardens will patrol the roads to give women commuters a sense of security.
He added that these wardens will also start awareness campaigns in different educational institutions. With these patrolling lady wardens, it will motivate other women to ride motorbikes.
Currently, at least 141 female officials are working in the city traffic police. Moreover, a separate Ladies Driving School has been established to boost self-confidence among women.
