Dhaka city needs more zebra crossings than footbridges. While it may be difficult for the elderly people to cross a road through a foot bridge, zebra crossings can help them cross the road without much difficulty. Most cities in the world have zebra crossings for crossing roads. Zebra crossings are the cheapest and best way to manage pedestrian movement on busy roads during peak hours. Therefore, the authorities concerned should consider having more zebra crossings in Dhaka.
