LAHORE: Officers of the National Highway and Motorway Police have been instructed to come up with ideas to make road journeys safer and reduce the number of fatalities in highway accidents. At a meeting here on Sunday, NHMP N-5 Central Deputy Inspector General Rai Altaf Hussain directed senior superintendents (sector commanders) to get feedback from road users on how they felt they had been treated by officers when being issued tickets or when being assisted with a problem. He asked the officers to prepare a form to be handed out to road users seeking their feedback. He directed the officers to personally patrol the highways and conduct surprise checks of their respective zones to assess the performance of patrolling officers.
