What a nice traffic warden!

SIR - I felt compelled to write in defence of traffic wardens.

I know this may sound alien to some people, but my experience on Monday, October 29, certainly changed my slightly blinkered opinion of them.

I had to visit WGC town centre to take my mother, who is in her late 70s, to the bank.

I pulled up outside the bank and let her walk the short distance while I waited with the car.

I was actually slightly overhanging a double yellow line which I had not realised when stopping.

After a couple of minutes a traffic warden approached my car and I explained that I would only be a couple of minutes while my mother was in the bank.

He politely told me that there was a vacant parking space even closer to the bank and walked over to the space and waited there until I moved my car.

He then explaned how long I could stay in that space.

He really went out of his way to help and I really appreciated this.

Traffic wardens often get a bad press, but please remember, they are human beings and only doing their job.

If we treat them with respect, I am sure it will be returned; it certainly was on this occassion.
