The violence of illegal three wheelers on the Dhaka-Khulna highway is not stopping at all. Along with that, road accidents are increasing by leaps and bounds. In order to avoid accidents, the government has enacted laws not to carry goods beyond capacity, not to talk on the driver’s mobile phone while driving, not to seat people next to the driver, not to drive at excessive speed and not to drive three wheelers on highways. But the violence of three wheelers on the highway of Gopalganj is not reducing at all.
The picture is the same everywhere on the nearly 60 km road on the Dhaka-Khulna highway in Gopalganj district. People’s lives are being lost prematurely in road accidents due to the violence of three wheelers Nachimon, Karimon, Autobike, Easybike. How three wheelers are roaming openly on the highway in front of the law enforcement agencies is the question of the local people.
Munsi Wahiduzzaman, the owner of Energy Park Oil Pump, said that we who travel in private cars are afraid of three wheelers. The three-wheelers themselves ply the highway in defiance of the law and put legitimate vehicles at risk.
Bus driver Shaukat Ali said that the three wheelers cause a lot of problems. They move in the middle of the road whenever they get a chance. On the other side is the reckless speed of long-distance buses on the highway. Due to these reasons, accidents are increasing by leaps and bounds.
In this regard, Gopalganj District Roads and Public Roads (SOAZ) Assistant Director (Engineer) Abul Bashar said that the movement of the wheeler on the highway is completely prohibited. They have no registration. Even then, why do they move on the highway? We question why the police allow them to get on the highway and move. There is no registration of three wheeler vehicles. These vehicles are completely prohibited. If these cars were allowed, we would have written on the papers that ‘cannot take the highway’.
