The Road Development Authority today advised motorists using expressways to switch on headlights when travelling in the heavy rain.

Expressway Operation Maintenance and Management Deputy Director, R. A. D. Kahatapitiya advised motorists to travel at a controlled speed to avoid accidents.

“You can’t see more than 30 meters ahead because of the rain. Motorists should be very careful when driving in this weather,” he said. No accidents have been reported as yet.

    Motorcyclists were having their head lights on for a while riding during day time too. What happened to that rule?

    Good move with a speed limits.

    Give attention to speed limits for Buses and heavy vehicles on expressways. A heavy vehicle like a bus when driven at 100Kmph cannot stop in an emergency within a distance like a motor car driven at the same speed due to the weight etc. Buses do not have a safety belt for each seat and passengers get thrown off, if braked at a higher speed causing serious injury. When they overtake a motor car at high speed the car will sway due to drag caused by the bus making it unstable for a moment. Limit speeds of heavy vehicles to 80 or 85 Kmph and keep them always on the left lane unless they need to move to right lane to avoid an obstruction. Already buses are involved in some serious accidents in Southern expressway. More expressways are to get added to the network hence introduce rules and enforce them for safety of every one.
