    Agree, The three wheelers are a curse to the road.

    Road accidents kill more than the war killed during the 30 years. Police need to be vigilent at night rather than the day time for driving under the influence of liquor

    The army should really provide better transport for the soldiers

    Three wheelers are 'death trap". President please ban this vehicle in Sri Lanka. How many valuable lives we lost and how many disabled ?

    Three wheelers are a menace to our society and should be banned as soon as possible.

    Governments give three wheelers to people during elections to garner support. This is another way of killing people. Ban three wheelers and give proper employment to people. Very soon Sri Lanka will be known as three wheel dumping country.Valuable lives of four airmen lost due to three wheelers.

    Similarly , truck drivers are also not properly trained. They drive like maniacs on narrow roads. Three wheelers are razing with big vehicles , overtake from left , right, cut in front. There need to be some solution . People should come up with solutions.
