At least 88 cases were filed by eight mobile courts of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) under the Road Transport Act-2018 in Dhaka city on Monday.
The BRTA set up mobile courts at different spots in the capital on the day.
AKM Masudur Rahman, director (enforcement) of BRTA, said the mobile courts also fined Tk 1.21 lakh for violating the new act that came into effect from Sunday.
The BRTA started operation of its mobile courts at
different places, including Manik Mia Avenue and Uttara in the capital, to implement the much-talked about the RTA.
The mobile courts, in most of the cases, found expired and faulty licences of the bus drivers and fined them right away.
The law enforcers were reluctant in enforcing the new law on Monday and thus no people were awarded jail, the BRTA director said.
Besides, the BRTA also operated two mobile courts in Chattogram city, he said. A gazette notification was issued on Sunday after completion of the legal process on operating the mobile courts.
