Court asks measures to stop hydraulic horns

Dhaka – The government was asked for measures to stop usages of hydraulic horns in vehicles that cause serious sound pollution in the Bangladeshi capital city of Dhaka, court officials said on Wednesday.

A High Court bench comprising Justice Quazi Reza-Ul Hoque and Justice Justice Mohammad Ullah passed the order after a writ petition filed with the court seeking ban on the pollution-making horns within 48 hours.

Lawyer Yunus Ali Akand, who moved the petition by Manzil Murshid, said the court also asked the authorities concerned to seize those vehicles using hydraulic horns after August 27.

The petitioner said that the laws on motor vehicles forbid using any machine on vehicle that caused sound pollution. Such horns are being used in many vehicles posing serious threat to public health.

Earlier the HC asked the government why directions should not be given for proper measures for cars parking in the city.
