According to the World Bank report on World Population Day, Dhaka is one of the fastest growing cities in the world whose population (around 5 million) has been stretched to its limit. However, for transportation of such a huge number of people, the city offers a very limited number of open, wide streets, a manual traffic control system and a force of some three thousand overcommitted traffic police who have to struggle a lot to control such enormous volume of people and vehicles with very limited resources. . . According to experts one of the main reasons for Dhaka's characteristic extensive traffic jam is the uncontrolled movement of public transport. As there is no metro rail or tubes, 15 million citizens of Dhaka rely mostly on buses for travelling in and around the city. According to Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA), the number of public buses in Dhaka is around 22,814 among which 9,995 buses are 20-seater mini buses. However, the total number of vehicles in Dhaka is more than 4 hundred thousand at present. With no automatic system for traffic control, Dhaka Metropolitan Police's Traffic division is fighting a losing battle to control such huge and increasing number of vehicles.
