The government is going to enforce the much-anticipated Road Transport Act 2018 from today, said Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader urging the transport owners and workers to follow the law.
He made the announcement while speaking at a program at the American International University in Dhaka's Bashundhara Residential Area.
Although the act was supposed to come into effect on November 1, Quader halted its full execution, saying that people lacked awareness about the tough law.
On October 22, the Road Transport and Highways Division issued a gazette stating that the law would come into effect on November 1.
Parliament passed the law in September last year.
