Traffic Police in Bangladesh

Traffic Police

Traffic police is a unit of police force whose first and foremost duty is to control traffic movement and enforce traffic regulations. Traffic officers help keep roads and walkways free of congestion so regular traffic, emergency vehicles and pedestrians can move about safely. Depending on the location, they patrol on foot or in vehicles. Traffic officers typically don’t need higher education. They receive on-the-job training and class instruction. Among other duties, traffic officers enforce parking regulations. Traffic officers are responsible for directing traffic during procession, road work or accidents. Sometimes traffic officers direct pedestrian foot traffic. They may assume the responsibility of the crossing guard if one is not present. Traffic officers may also control crowds during emergencies to make sure fire and rescue workers can get to the scene safely. Traffic officers may be asked to testify in court regarding parking violations. They are usually required to keep a daily log of events during their shift. Though traffic officers in Bangladesh have to work very hard in the midst of speeding vehicles and in rough and tough weather, they are being paid minimum wage. Their plights on the road go unnoticed most of the time. So, we should evaluate their valuable contribution to the society and respect them. Government should also take steps to change their fortune.
