Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that in case of any accident, the driver is caught and beaten. Many times he was beaten to death. Why the accident happened, for whom it happened – has to be considered. Mass beating, don’t vandalize cars. Everyone has to obey the traffic laws. And everyone needs to know about traffic rules and follow them. You have to cross the road with your mobile phone and stop walking on the railway line.
He was speaking at the inauguration of various projects of the Roads and Highways Department through video conference from the Prime Minister’s official residence Ganobhaban on Wednesday (January 12).
He said don’t run across the road suddenly. But the accident happened at the road crossing. Everyone has to be careful. There are foot overbridges and underpasses everywhere. They have to be used properly. I would especially tell the students to obey the traffic rules while walking on the road. The traffic rule should be taught in schools, colleges and universities.
The Prime Minister said 209 blackspots have been identified on the national highways across the country from 2010 to 2012 to prevent road accidents. Remedial measures have been taken in it. Later, 252 more blackspots were identified on national and regional highways. Of these, remedial measures have been taken in 182 cases. Remedial measures will also be taken in the remaining 60 blackspots. As a result, accidents on roads and highways will be significantly reduced.
Sheikh Hasina said the traffic police would assist in crossing the road safely to reach the school, but the school authorities should also keep people. Many times children do not want to obey others. If there are people in the school authorities, they will obey. Each school will be instructed by the Ministry of Education to ensure that their students cross the road safely.
The Prime Minister said the accident was an accident. Who is to blame, it will be seen later. A lot of times he gets hit, he might have survived. But when the driver stopped the car, he was beaten to death and left. A man’s life is gone. If anything, grab the driver and set the car on fire, that’s not right. No one will take the law into their own hands. There are law enforcement agencies, they will look into it.
