Peshawar a fast growing metropolitan city having a population of more than 7.1 million is faced with an acute problem of traffic congestion. According to a report, the average traffic count in Peshawar on a given day is 750,000 vehicles including both domestic and international traffic meant for Afghanistan. To solve the traffic congestion issues, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police launched Traffic Warden Service on 18-06-2015.
The guiding principles of Traffic Warden Service are “Educate, Facilitate and Regulate”. It is a force of 2000 trained and educated police officers and has a fleet consisting of 60 heavy motorbikes, 30 forklifts and 20 cars. All the traffic wardens have undergone special training with motorway police and are equipped with modern day gadgets including Hand Held Units (HHUs), Recording cameras etc. For effective traffic management IP based CCTV cameras have been installed in all the important chowks and roads which are monitored 24 / 7 from the command and control center established at Traffic Headquarters Peshawar.
Traffic Warden Service has Mobile Driving License issuance service for on-spot issuance of driving license, dedicated Help Line (1915), FM Channel to update and guide the citizens about traffic congestion and alternate routes, SMS-based Traffic update service (8583), Emergency Ambulance Service etc. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police has made all necessary arrangements to extend Traffic Warden Service to Abbottabad and Swat districts.
