After Dhaka, court bans use of hydraulic horn across country
A High Court Division bench on Sunday directed the government to stop the use of hydraulic horns across the country, aiming to mitigate the sound pollution. The HC bench of Justice Kazi Rezaul Haque and Justice Mohammad Ullah passed the order after hearing on a supplementary petition. Earlier on August 23, the same bench banned the use of hydraulic horns in Dhaka as human rights organisation Human Rights and Peace for Bangladesh filed a writ petition in this regard on August 22.

Later on October 8, the transport owners and drivers of Dhaka were given 15 days to deposit the hydraulic horns used in their vehicles to their respective police stations. Later, a writ petition was filed seeking ban on the use of hydraulic horns across the country. According to the writ petition, any machine which causes sound pollution can not be used as per Motors Vehicles Ordinance. But violating the act, different vehicles are using hydraulic horns.
