    This is the fault of the Police themselves. These heavy vehicles including buses speed over 80 kmph on arrow roads mostly overtaking in front of on coming traffic. They simply don't care and the Police are so worried of cars crossing the straight line and ignore the heavy vehicles

    So how come these same charges did not happen when Kusal Mendis arrogantly ran over an innocent man and managed to clear the whole case with 1 million.
