LAHORE: Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Rai Ijaz Ahmad has stopped traffic wardens from issuing tickets to motorists on Eidul Fitr and has asked them to rather educate them.

Addressing the lady ticketing officers and shift in-charges, he directed them to leave no stone unturned in facilitating the citizens.

The CTO was delivering a lecture to the lady ticketing officers and shift in-charges of all 34 traffic sectors at the Government College University (GCU) on Thursday.

He said 100,000 road safety pamphlets were distributed by ticketing offices among the people when they visited traffic office to collect their documents after submitting challans. He said the ticketing officers should also brief the people on traffic laws.

“We can’t improve traffic system until the citizens start following traffic laws and cooperate with the wardens,” he said.

Mr Ahmad asked all the SPs, DSPs, sector in-charges, patrolling officers and wardens to ensure the smooth flow of traffic during Eid. He said special traffic units would perform duties at public places to ensure smooth flow of traffic. All the officers of the City Traffic Police Lahore would perform duties on the eve of Eid and review the traffic flow on different points, he added.
