Dhaka Metropolitan Police Commissioner Md Shafiqul Islam warned everyone of stern punitive action for breaking traffic rules and causing road accidents.
The commissioner urged everyone to abide by the newly enforced road transport act, and said, "No one including transport owners and workers will be able to save their back if our children have to take to the streets [in demand of road safety] once again."
Md Shafiqul said this while addressing the inauguration ceremony of Traffic Awareness Fortnight 2019 at the Rajarbagh Police Lines in Dhaka on Thursday.
A huge number of hydraulic horns were destroyed in the presence of the chief guest at the event, State Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal.
The traffic fortnight will continue till December 5.
