Bangladesh's traffic menace

Police are trying to get dangerous and dilapidated vehicles off the streets.

    Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, has one of the highest rates of traffic accidents in the world.
      
    Its roads are dominated by thousands of old and dangerous vehicles, which police are now trying to get rid of.

    Among the old vehicles are dilapidated public buses, that many Bangladeshis say are the cheapest way to get around.
