Violation of the traffic rule has become a regular phenomenon in the capital as drivers of different modes of vehicles are frequently doing the misdeed despite facing over 2000 cases on an average per day.
Although Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) is on hot pursuit to take legal action against the traffic rule violators, driving on wrong-side, using hydraulic horn and tinted glass in vehicles as well as plying unfit vehicles, talking over mobile phone while driving are going on in full swing. They even put their lives, pedestrians and others at risk due to reckless driving.  In accordance with available statistics of the last several months of the DMP, on an average over 2000 cases file a day against different modes of vehicles for traffic rule violations. It also realises on an average Taka 17 lakh as fine for traffic rule violations.
Of the cases, on an average 700 are being filed against motorcyclists a day for violating of the traffic rules. While 40 to 50 motorbikes are being seized everyday for the same reason.
Experts say the unruly motorcyclists cause accidents, violate traffic regulations and even create nuisance to pedestrians by driving motorcycles on footpaths and wrong-way due to lack of proper enforcement of traffic rules and in absence of strong monitoring.
Many of the owners even do not register their motorcycles with Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC) and often use their motorbikes in committing crimes, they said.
The frequent seizure of these vehicles has caused another problem as the yards police stations are being occupied with motorcycles, he said.  Wrong-way driving is going on in full-swing in the capital despite the DMP files over 200 cases on an average a day.
The DMP files over 60 cases on an average per day in the capital for talking over mobile phone while driving.
On an average of the total cases, as many as 44 cases are being filed for using hydraulic horn, seven for using hotter and beckon light and nine others for using tinted glass.
The DMP on an average files over 50 cases are being lodged a day on charges of talking over mobile phone while they were driving.  It also on an average dumps over 60 vehicles and wrecks over 600 others for traffic rule violations.
Likewise the previous days, traffic division of the DMP in their simultaneous drives on the city streets on Sunday filed 2274 cases against different modes of vehicles for traffic rule violation.  It also realized Taka 22.40 lakh as fine from owners, said an official release.
Of the total cases, 191 cases were lodged for driving on wrong sides, 44 for using hydraulic horn, four for using hotter and beckon light and five others for using tinted glass.
Some 50 cases, including 36 video cases, were registered against drivers of different modes of vehicles on charges of talking over mobile phone while they were driving.
It also dumped 32 vehicles and wrecked 597 others.  Besides, 638 cases were filed against motorcycles and 68 motorbikes were seized for the traffic rule violations.
