Use it or turn it off
Traffic lights are supposed to have in-built timers that can indicate how long it will take for a green light to turn red and vice versa. But most traffic lights in Dhaka are on 24 hours a day. It is a total waste of tax payers' money resulting in motorists violating traffic rules all the time. The DMP should make the traffic lights function properly and encourage motorists to obey traffic rules by making them stop at red lights and go when the light is green. Eventually, everyone will learn to follow the rules. And if the government fails to fix the traffic lights, I suggest they be turned off permanently to save cost.
