Monday, September 10, 2012
A TRAFFIC enforcer of the Bacolod Traffic Authority Office (BTAO) has inspired businessmen while performing his regular duty along Lacson-Lizares Streets near the Lupit Church.
BTAO traffic enforcer Antonio Cordero Jr., 65, of Barangay 7, this city inspired businessman Tyron Cu, who sought the help of a supplier, Hubert Chan, son of the owner of Atlanta Industries Inc., to give reflectorized vests not only for Cordero but also for the other traffic enforcers in the city.
Atlanta Industries Inc. is a company based in Manila dealing with PVC pipes and Industrial Plastics. Cu’s company is the logistics partner of Atlanta.
Last week, Cu turned over about 200 pieces of reflectorized vests for BTAO at the New Government Center during a courtesy call on Mayor Evelio Leonardia.
Cu said that he could see Cordero really loved his job as traffic enforcer, as he performed his duties exemplarily well whether rain or shine. He said such dedication should have protection on his body while performing his duty.
On the other hand, Cordero said he is also very thankful for the help of the businessmen who showed concern and appreciation for his job as traffic enforcer.
Cordero said the reflectorized vests are a big help for them while they perform their duties on the different streets in the city, especially during the night.
He said he is only doing his job and he wants to serve as a good example to his colleagues, adding that he really loves his job and enjoys seeing motorists happy with the way he directs traffic.
“I’m inspired when I see them smiling,” he said.
Cordero disclosed that he is already 10 years in service as traffic enforcer. He also encourages his colleagues to love their respective jobs because even in their own little way, they are serving the public. (Merlinda A. Pedrosa/Jamie Bentinganan)
