A motivating video has emerged of two young men with a disability passionately directing road traffic despite the danger it posed to their safety and health.
The video of the two young men managing the traffic situation in the scorching sun affirms the narrative that disability is not an inability.
In the video that is fast gaining traction on social media, the physically challenged men can be seen directing traffic on a busy road, while sitting on a wheel board.
The video clip which lasted less than a minute shows there was no police officer present at the time.

Though there were also no traffic lights in sight, the traffic flow was not heavy as the vehicles were moving smoothly.
Perhaps, the early intervention of the two physically challenged men contributed to easing the traffic before they were filmed.
The two men have been lauded on social media for not using their current state as an excuse to beg for money to fend for themselves but have made themselves useful to society.
