Popular Dhallywood actor and road safety activist Ilias Kanchan made a post today on his official Facebook account, stating support for the new Road Transport Act, which has been implemented this month.

In the post uploaded 21 hours ago, Kanchan wrote: "I want to assert with utmost conviction, that the Road Transport Act has been implemented to return discipline in the roads once again, and to reduce the number of accidents. It is not for imprisoning people or collecting fines from them. The purpose is not to punish anyone. If you all maintain the new regulations, then discipline will return. And if the discipline actually returns, then why is there any fear of fines?

The post continues: "If you commit a crime then you will be jailed or fined. If you are innocent, then why will you be fined or jailed? What I am failing to understand is that, instead of rectifying yourself, instead of obtaining a proper license or skill in driving, or obtaining proper registration and fitness for your vehicles, why are you all holding the people hostage and creating a anarchic situation by complaining about the prison terms and fines?

The post ends with the paragraph: "If you would all patiently evaluate the new Road Transport Act from the perspective of a legal system, you will notice that it does not singularly target any one party. Especially, it does not target the vehicle drivers. Rather the Act also talks about increasing the reputation of drivers, setting a designated amount of work hours, and creating an environment that welcomes drivers with proper contract papers. Then why are you all protesting against this? Why do you have this mindset of not being receptive to laws?"

The post went viral as soon as it was uploaded, and over 24,000 people reacted to it. Over 1,700 comments were made on the post by his followers.
