The city government of Manila has deployed “mommy traffic enforcers” to manage traffic outside 72 public elementary schools following the resignation of 690 traffic personnel as ordered by Mayor Joseph Estrada.
The 251 mommy traffic enforcers, who have completed an extensive traffic management, first aid, and childcare trainings, have been tapped to safeguard pupils coming in and out.
Estrada said the deployment of mommy traffic enforcers would be a big help now that the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTPB) is being reorganized.
“We can now feel secured knowing that there are mommies out there taking care of the safety of our school children, their own children,” Estrada said.
“With their motherly love, we are sure they will do their duties with all their heart,” he added. (Jaimie Rose R. Aberia)
