    No Police officer should hold these sign boards. It has downgrading effect on their morale. Engage some labourers with the yellow work coat

    Lawry, 99% of the Police Men and almost 100% of the Police women don’t have University education. But you prefer highly educated Graduates,because they are unemployed, to do this job of standing in the middle of the roads with traffic signs. It should have been the other way around, Police should be Graduate profession and others doing the “standing in the middle of the roads”.

    Why don't they get the 225 parliamentarians to stand in the middle of the road displaying the sign boards. They will never break the rules and be displined drivers
