Photo of the day

The initiative by the two Dhaka city corporations to put up waste bins on the roadsides was welcomed by all, but with passing time and lack of maintenance, only their skeletons remain.

pay out fines

A large number of motor vehicle drivers crowd in front of the office of Deputy Commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police’s Traffic West, to pay out fines and clear the traffic rule violation cases filed against their licences. Officials of the office said hundreds of people are flocking to the office, to make sure they are not penalised heavily under the newly-implemented Road Transport Act.
