Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Commissioner Aashaduzzaman Mia warned that no human hauler (locally named as Leguna) will be allowed to ply on the streets of the capital, UNB reports.
“Due to this type of vehicles, major chaotic situations created on the street and those are one of the main causes of road accidents,” DMP commissioner said while addressing a press conference organized on the month-long traffic management programme at its media centre on Tuesday.
He also said a huge number of Leguna are carrying people illegally on Dhaka streets as those human haulers do not have any route permit.
These vehicles can only play on the roads outside the city like the 300-feet or in Bashila areas, said Aashaduzzaman Mia.
He said they have designated 121 bus stops. “No buses will be allowed to board and drop off passengers at any point aside from these designated spots—and the buses will have to keep their doors shut between stops.”
He urged the city dwellers to use zebra crossings, footbridges, and underpasses while crossing the roads.
The DMP chief said filling stations will not supply fuel to motorcyclists if they do not have helmets.
