One of the main reasons behind the traffic jams in Dhaka is the haphazard parking of vehicles.
It has become quite common nowadays to see that cars, motorcycles and even trucks or lorries are being parked wherever the opportunity is available. These illegally parked vehicles block up several lanes on the street and ultimately cause traffic jams.
The traffic jams that so frequently occur in front of schools and colleges are due to the same reason. Cars waiting for the students obstruct the oncoming traffic and causes inconvenience for all, even for themselves. The traffic personnel's efforts go in vain as they focus on redirecting the traffic instead of eliminating the root cause of the problem.
Thus it is mandatory that there should be no disorderly parking in front of schools or other institutions. Rather, the vehicles maybe parked at a less congested space a short distance away, for instance, in an open field or at some other parking spot. That way the students and the guardians would have to walk only a little while the flow of traffic will not be obstructed.
