The reckless attitude of the drivers – especially the ones driving trucks, covered vans and pickups – is the main reason behind the increasing number of road accidents in Bangladesh.
Famed actor, and Nirapad Sarak Chai's Founding Chairman, Ilias Kanchan, stated this in a press release issued on Saturday.
"The Road Transport Act 2018 was relaxed after unreasonable demands were made by transport drivers. This made the drivers more reckless," he said.
Claiming that the number of cases and fines against reckless drivers reduced after the new law was implemented, Ilias Kanchan said that discipline on the roads collapsed because of this.
