Dhaka is being held to ransom by the public transport system. The city buses and trekkers stop anywhere for any amount of time which creates artificial traffic jam. The driver does not even care to look behind to see how much traffic chaos he is creating. Sometimes buses create a road train by stopping at bus stops in a line. It can be often seen in all the busy areas in the city-- Mirpur, Mohakhali, Farmgate, Rampura, resulting in pollution and health hazards for the pedestrians. They suddenly stop on the slightest signal without considering that they are driving on a public road which may lead to an accident.
The authorities concerned should take tough action against the erring drivers.
