Eight mobile courts of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) filed a total of 88 cases under the new Road Transport Act (RTA) 2018 in Dhaka city on Monday, on the first day of their operation.
The mobile courts also fined Tk 1.21 lakh for violating the new act that came into effect from Monday (November 18), said AKM Masudur Rahman, Director (enforcement) of BRTA.
The BRTA started operation of its mobile court at different places including Manik Mia Avenue and Uttara in the capital to implement the much-talked about the RTA.
The law enforcers were seen not very strict in enforcing the new law on the first day and thus no people were awarded jail, the BRTA director said.
