    Unlike many other countries we are not hit by nasty typhoons or earthquake frequently but for that blessing we have been cursed with these reckless drivers to cause fatal accidents in every way possible.

    More and more lives will continue to perish as long as drivers have this attitude that they are the only ones using the roads. Absolutely zero road courtesy, especially in the city areas.

    3 wheelers are the number 1 killer on the road. These vehicles have been portrayed as a poor man's vehicle but what nobody understands is, it is a zero safety vehicle. Life is more precious. Hopefully Govt will ban these 3 wheelers soon

    When will finally a politician have the backbone and make a law that these running death traps disappear from the streets of Sri Lanka? Probably never, because human lives have no value compared to votes.

    In this incident, nothing wrong with the bus driver. Why should they arrest the bus driver ?
