Lane laws strictly implemented on more roads

6 December 2015 04:26 am - 20     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Police said today the lane law regulation which was already in effect in Colombo would be strictly implemented along Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Duplication Road and Highlevel Road from Nugegoda to Colombo from tomorrow (Dec 7).

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said additional police officers will be deployed to oversee drivers adhered to the regulations.
The Police had strictly implemented the traffic lane laws in Colombo especially along Sri Jayewardenepura Road from Jayanthipura to Colombo on November 26.

However ASP Gunasekara said the regulations were in effect from November 1 and that they had already deployed a large number of police officers to monitor selected roads in Colombo.

He said legal action had been taken against 13,095 motorists in November for violating the law as well as parking in unauthorized spaces.
ASP Gunasekara said the regulations were strictly implemented to reduce traffic and increase discipline among motorists.(DS)

    The laws should be first implemented within the Police Department.

    The million dollar question is for how long will these laws be implemented. Most of these laws are made with good intentions but sadly fall along the way after some time.

    To do these changes need to wash the hands of policemen.

    Great that finally laws are being enforced. BUT they must apply to 3 wheelers and buses, the biggest culprits. Or it will be of no use!

    Jimmy Sunday, 06 December 2015 02:11 PM

    A great start but this must continue until all roads are being monitered and laws being enforced..
