Come, be a traffic regulator in Delhi during CWG

New Delhi: Come Commonwealth Games and you could see the `common man` regulating traffic on Delhi roads.
Delhi Police has invited "motivated residents" to enrol themselves as volunteers for traffic regulation during the mega sporting extravaganza to be held between October three and 14.
"We expect huge traffic during the event. Delhiites can help us in making the roads safer and congestion free. We have roped in cricketer Virender Sehwag to appeal to the people to join the programme," a senior police official said.
City Police Commissioner YS Dadwal himself had earlier admitted that there could be pressure on the traffic situation in the capital during the Games and said the authorities would carry out a massive campaign next month.
According to the programme, a Delhiite who is above 18 years of age and Class XII pass can enrol as a volunteer and his services will be utilised for 20 days between September 25 and October 15.
"What you need is only a mobile phone and an email ID. If the volunteer has a driving licence, it is better. Download the application from the Delhi Traffic Police website
www.delhitrafficpolice.nic.in and you will soon receive your registration number," the official said.
The official said a volunteer will have to work for at least three hours a day during those 20 days at a time of his choice.
However, the official said, no remuneration will be paid as it is an "honorary volunteership".
Asked how many people will be enrolled, he said that there is no limit.
