Attention Being Paid to Traffic Officers in Documentary

Attention Being Paid to Traffic Officers in Documentary

If you ever thought or felt that traffic officers inside this country did not get the credit or attention that they so thoroughly deserve with all the hard work that they put into ensuring that road services in this country run as smoothly as possible despite the madness of congestion and inconsiderate drivers, then think again. Indeed, the well-renowned and frequently avoided Channel 5 is set to be the new site on national broadcasted television to indicate the trials and tribulations that traffic officers in the North Western regions of the country experience on a daily basis.

A production crew has been diligently observing the activities of officers Jason Williamson, Mike Caffrey and Barry Connolly in order to open the public’s eyes to the issues that these workers need to cover in the North Western area during the harsh winter months, often where the greatest amount of road accidents and highway turmoil occur. Operating along the M62 as well as the M6, these three professionals have their headquarters based in the area of Newton-le-Willows and are part of the community of more than 1,000 employees in the traffic officer field. Per annum, these brave and dedicated individuals are required to respond on demand and often at short notice to the total of 2,000 road incidents that occur on Britain’s motorway systems every single year.

Whilst some of these are minor and of no major concern, the majority of them can result in serious havoc for commuters and travelers along the motorway and the series shows that none of the incidents that traffic officers encounter are dealt with lightly. Indeed, Messrs Williamson and Caffrey (both local Northerners from Macclesfield and Warrington) both expressed the pleasure that they feel when going to work and were pleased that the Winter Road Rescue would devote time and attention towards the kind of work that they do.
