A city choked by traffic

I have been living abroad for the past 35 years. When I come to visit my elderly mother in Dhaka, my heart sinks at the traffic and stench of garbage everywhere. It's difficult to walk through the streets due to the rotting piles of waste and the stray dogs rummaging through them for putrefied food items. I believe that there should be a hefty fine or garbage tax for any illegal dumping.
Regarding traffic, the city needs deployment of more traffic lights and police. This issue can easily be resolved if the city officials give some importance to the woes of the suffering public.
