A Saudi traffic policeman who dedicated his life to patrolling the kingdom’s roads, keeping an eye on reckless drivers to protect citizens from accidents, was killed on Saturday in a tragic road accident.

The traffic policeman, who previously served as a war Major General, was on his way to Mecca from Jeddah when he was killed, the Saudi-based news site Ajel reported.

The traffic warden worked in a number of regions in Saudi Arabia throughout his years in the police.
