Ahmad Junaedi, a 45-year old man born with lower leg deformities, who has been volunteering as a road traffic controller for over 20 years, recently received a plaque of gratitude from the Indonesian National Police. Junaedi, known by many as Mr Dedi, provided a glimpse into his daily life on the streets of Tangerang on Monday. Junaedi was filmed getting ready in his home, assisted by his wife Sukini, followed by him driving his motorcycle and regulating the flow of traffic from the roadside. «I praise God because I am really happy to be his wife, because he is a man of responsibility, he's very neat, very disciplined and also very dedicated in controlling the traffic,» said Sukini. Junaedi reportedly works from 10:00 to 17:00 each day, controlling the traffic in the vicinity of his home. He earns his living by donations from some of the drivers.
