Vote to select best traffic cop

Traffic policemen will soon be rewarded for their stressful work through a programme launched jointly by Bangalore City Traffic police and Traffic Police Care (TPC), an NGO.

Under the programme, commuters will vote whether they were happy or unhappy with the traffic police in a particular area. The selection for the reward will be based on the feedback from the commuters.

The project will be launched on a pilot basis on October 1 at busy traffic junctions such as Koramangala Sony World junction, Silk Board junction, Manyata-Lumbini Park junction, CMH Road-BMSri junction and Jayanagar South End Circle. Addressing a press meet on Wednesday, TPC CEO Santosh Kumar said that commuters would have to dial a phone number to be displayed at the junctions. As they call the number, it gets disconnected automatically and immediately the caller will get a link via an SMS. The caller will have to go to a website through the link and can then vote ‘happy’ or ‘unhappy.’

“Depending on the number of ‘happy’ votes a particular traffic cop gets, he will be given some rewards,” said Dayananda, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic).
