    Yes correct. I definitely agree on this. These heavy vehicles are one of the main reasons for traffic jams. Poorly maintained

    Some of these container drivers drive such huge vehicle as if it is a 3 wheeler. Only sharp turning at higher speed will topple a container truck. This obviously a drivers fault.

    Most of the accidents are attributed to reckless driving under the influence of liquor. Deterrent punishment is the solution via DM Android App

    This is the reason why former President Premadasa brought in the rule where containers and transport of building materials etc were permitted to travel only between 9pm to 6am. I think the government should bring in this rule once again.
