‘Tough actions to be taken against wrong side driving on highways’

Like previous years, movement of truck, lorry and covered van will be halted for the three days before and after Eid to ease the traffic chaos on the three highways while emergency vehicles, including medicine and perishable items, will ply during the time, said AKM Hafiz, Chittagong district’s superintendent of police AKM Hafiz Akter. He said this after a meeting that was held at the Chittagong district police headquarters in the afternoon where transport leaders and owners were present. SP Hafiz Akter said driving in the wrong side was the prime cause of road accident. Police would take stern action against them who ply the vehicle on the wrong way of the highways, he said adding that additional police have also been deployed to check irregularities on the highways. “Zero tolerance will be showed for rampant extortion on the highways during the Eid rush. “Police will not allow any unfit vehicle on the highway for the sake of public safety,” he added. Hafiz Akter also requested the transport owners not to hike the tickets’ price before the Eid. He also asked bus owners to take footage of the passengers before departure from the counter to check Molom Party and Ogyan party’s activities on the transport. Mrinal Chowhdury, president of Transport Worker federation’s East Zone, Mozaffar Ahmed, secretary general of Covered Van Goods Laden Owner Association and Abu Bakar Siddique, joint secretary of Prime Mover Owner Association, addressed the meeting among others.
