At least 1,119 cases were filed and Tk 1.86 million fines were imposed in June this year while the number of cases was 17,01 and the fined amount was Tk 3.02 million in February.

The transport regulator also filed some 2,108 cases and realised over Tk 2.96 million in fines in January 2021 for such causes.

The number of mobile court drives the transport authority led in May was 201 while it was 216 in April.

The mobile courts also jailed 17 people in May this year while the number was 10 in April, as per a BRTA report.
