    Even after the Bandarawela accident, this driver did not learn a lesson. Finally, the fate laid upon poor innocent human.... sorry... Oh my God.

    We don't need to go far to see these miscreants at work. All the media has to do is stand near the end of green path at the public library end, and record the buses taking the corner from the museum towards Colpetty.

    The new tactic is for the transport minister Welgama to give Rs. 10,000 for all injured out of his so called "own money" and show the fools in this country that he cares.
