ISLAMABAD - The dysfunctional traffic signals are creating enormous problems for the commuters of the capital city, while traffic wardens deployed on the signals allow each side to go on their own wish without taking care of time, which causes traffic jams. Due to the loadshedding, most of the signals in the city often remain dysfunctional, whereas at some signals warden of the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) are deployed, while there are no personnel’s deployed at most of the signal to control heavy flow of traffic.

Rehan Abbasi, one of the commuters said that the long queues on traffic signals also causing inconvenience for ambulances, because it was not possible for ambulance and other emergency vehicles to rush through the heavy traffic.

Another commuter said that it is not possible for one warden to control the heavy flow of traffic and suggested that it is necessary to deploy at least three to four personnel’s at each signal.
