Dhaka, Feb. 20 -- Many have been demanding a total ban on the battery-run three-wheelers ruling the alleyways of Dhaka for the dangers of the light vehicles moving at a high-speed.

Others argue that the city known to many across the world for its rickshaws pedalled by men is better with the electric rickshaws since they are faster and can travel longer.

The weak brake system despite a high-speed lead these electric rickshaws to cause accidents frequently.

The drivers also tend to take the main roads, often on the wrong lanes, despite a ban.

Traffic police say they are working on ways to prevent these vehicles from plying the streets of Dhaka following the law, but sometimes they are exempted from the ban for "humane reasons".
