    Their should be a strong policies regarding control of the school vans mafia. Because, they are getting money from the parents without any justiable reason. Even. vaction period, most of school vans asking ful lpayment .But , no any investigating or monitering machanism in this regard. Threfore these kind of issues should be considered.

    School students aren't allowed to travel in trishaws? What kind of child protection is this? Many parents prefer to send their children in trishaws to get them away from problems like congestion in buses

    While banning on the one side, there should be special provisions on the other. These transport means are resorted to because of the inconvenience & non-affordability of other means.

    consciousview Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:02 AM

    I think what they're referring to are trishaws that transport five to six children crammed into one trishaw.

    hrm Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:10 AM

    trishaws are convenient but it's survivability is low when met with an accident compared to closed vehicles.

    Panta Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:27 AM

    I want to send my child to school by trishaw. We can not effort sending child to school by car or van. Do NCPA provide a well protected vehicle to my child???????

    Right decision by the authorities although it may have negative consequence at present, it has long term benefits for our future generation.

    Royalist Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:33 AM

    Then the NCPA can provide us with Ministerial Limousines to send the children to school!

    Commonsense Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:40 AM

    I think this news lack of data.This news should be published how overcome the problem?

    Thinuka Sunday, 23 January 2011 07:58 AM

    Exactly correct, Sri Lankan politics know only to ban services & facilities. They never give PROPER alternative method, prior to those bans..

    concors Sunday, 23 January 2011 08:10 AM

    schools should arrange buses,private transport should be allowed to transport school children according to the seat capacity,mainly because the y charge very high fee for transportt. its a good move.

    loku aiya Sunday, 23 January 2011 08:21 AM

    what do you then expect the students to do? walk to home?

    first of all try to provide ample transport facilities, then talk all about this.

    knight Rider Monday, 24 January 2011 03:48 AM

    Safety & security should be top priority in our transport systems including roads. and there should be special team to identify all road and transport hazards on a daily basis which reduce accident and traffic jams

    usj1976 Sunday, 23 January 2011 09:05 AM

    Yes Gov can impose the rules we need alternatives

    Ari Sunday, 23 January 2011 09:28 AM

    How did the widely prevalent practice of transporting school children as pillion riders on motor bicycles and similarf conveyances escape the attention of the NCPA Chairperson?

    4Wheelman Sunday, 23 January 2011 09:36 AM

    So this means that my 3 wheel neighbour can't transport his own 3 kids to school in his trisho ???

    TMA Monday, 24 January 2011 04:33 AM

    OK. So what's the limit? buses R always loaded over the limit. Especially in the morning.

    If its for students safety concern that make sence but parents have no other altanative solutions.

    Yehiya-Doha Sunday, 23 January 2011 12:20 PM

    First provide the facilities, No buses in the morning.

    SL lover Sunday, 23 January 2011 01:27 PM

    Hello Dear,

    Banning any method of transport can be a disaster to middle and lower class parets.But I suggest to have a rule to limit the pessengers in any vehicle as standard.

    concors Sunday, 23 January 2011 02:14 PM

    SCHOOL TIME HAS TO BE CHANGED SO THAT SCHOOL CHILDREN CAN TRAVEL IN SLCTB.

    A LIVING FOR TRISHAW DRIVERS

    nimal gunatilleka Monday, 24 January 2011 04:13 PM

    I do agree with the suggestion.This should also include, motor cycles,with a clause "Allowed up to legal passenger capacity only "guiding both, authorities as well as the transporters added.The three wheelers & cyclists weave thru heavily over crowded& busy traffic causing many mishaps.

    mahasenevi Sunday, 23 January 2011 02:33 PM

    I am sorry to say the Gov has no plan how to solve thisnew@trafic' problem for children opr the public.

    wac Sunday, 23 January 2011 05:07 PM
