A new law will be introduced with a provision to control the use of private cars allowing only one car for each family, said Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader.
A move is underway to this effect, he said.
The minister was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of a rally on the World Car-Free Day at Manik Mia Avenue in the capital on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Dhaka North City Corporation Mayor Annisul Huq said that two roads on Gulshan-Banani and Mohammadpur-Mirpur routes will be declared car-free by March, next year.
