Traffic Constable: Ever tried standing in the scorching sun with a thick uniform, looking at the fools who just won’t obey the traffic rules, despite the fact that they are for their own safety? Well this is exactly what a traffic constable does, and you just pass by him without noticing what he is saying or doing. The pay in many countries is not very impressive and obviously the work environment, as mentioned, is really poor. A study from India reported that 79.4% of traffic constables were stressed due to a number of factors, including (but not limited to) inadequate rest, long duty hours, political pressure and witnessing too many accidents on the road. So here is a lesson to learn… next time when a traffic constable stops you or points out your mistake, treat him with respect and don’t forget to thank him for his services, because certainly, we are not literate enough to keep the traffic going without these unnoticed heroes.
Have a nice day everyone!
