  A voluntary organisation, traffic wardens have been effectively managing the unprecedented increase in vehicles over the years, during peak hours. The city police have identified Sureshnath M L, a retired professor, St Aloysius College to head TWO. He has also served the senior division of NCC for 15 years. He retired with the rank of Squadron leader. 

  Assistant commissioner of police (Traffic) M A Nataraj told that they are working towards relaunching TWO.  Sureshnath will be visiting Bengaluru to study and understand how the system works there, and will accordingly form rules, regulations and guidelines for the wardens to follow. The guidelines, including the selection process, will be strictly followed, henceforth. Once selected, the volunteers will be trained (in theory and practical), and will assist traffic police at important points, especially during peak hours,” he said. It is learnt that Sureshnath has set a target of recruiting at least 100 traffic wardens for the city. It is a voluntary organisation, and no remuneration is paid even for stitching the uniform or purchase of the cap and belt. 

  The Traffic Warden Squad was formed in 2015. Currently, there are about 10 traffic wardens. Bengaluru TWO has been able to attract people from all walks of life. The formal launch of Mangaluru TWO is expected to take place by the end of the month.
