Coimbatore: Fifty armed reserve women police constables were inducted into a task force constituted for better traffic management of congested stretches here on Thursday.
City Police Commissioner C. Sylendra Babu oversaw the imparting of training on traffic signs to them and Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime and Traffic) N. Kamini was present on the occasion.
These personnel would be initially posted on Tiruchi Road which requires manual regulation of traffic because of the ongoing road widening works and also on the congested Sathyamangalam Road. The remaining would be utilised for tackling traffic congestion in other places in the city.
Another batch of 50 women armed reserve constables would be given training in traffic signs and then inducted into the traffic management task force soon.
The personnel would be used for regulation of the flow of traffic and enforcement of road rules against those indulging in serious violations.
Such enforcement would have a desirable effect in ensuring a culture of compliance and road sense among motorists in the long run.
The 100-member traffic management task force would come in handy for handling the traffic during the meet.
