    The police should start charging for not following the lane discipline. three wheelers are the worst.

    That 2% should be stopped happenning by banning fire-crackers. Staying with families than playing with alcohol will also prevent road accidents and violence.

    I hope that pedestrians, 3 wheelers, motor bikes and push bicycles don't travel on the middle of the roads just because there are no vehicles. Passed several 3 wheelers which were virtually crawling on the middle of the galle road. Its a great danger to the other motorists. I hope that police will educate the public in the future to travel on the left side of the road if they want to crawl.
