Blocking busy street

Blocking a length along this busy street, traders leave the empty boxes used for delivering fish in front of the Karwan Bazar wholesale fish market. Though the fish get delivered in the morning, the boxes remain there for almost the entire day until those are picked up for re-delivery. This continuous and careless practice not only impedes traffic flow, but also can cause an accident. The photo was taken near BGMEA building around 5:00pm recently. Photo: Palash Khan
