You may agree with me that during pick hours, some of our roads within town like Chipasula, area 24, 23 and area 22 are always congested and needs a visible traffic police officer to control that because without controlling officer it can be chaos.

“The donated items will be distributed to traffic warden and this will help in easy identification so as to create no space for criminals who may come in the name of traffic warden and during night these will also help them to be easily seen.
“The items will also help to reduce unnecessary traffic congestions in the area,” He said
