Putting their lives at risk, people, mostly garment workers, commute home standing on the footboards of human hauliers on Dhaka-Aricha highway in Ulail area of Savar, on the outskirts of the capital. They have to travel this way frequently as a large number of workers stream out of garments in the area after the end of their work hours, leading to a transport crisis.
