    Most of the drivers here do not believe in the saying "It is better to be late, than "the late"

    The van driver was in hurry to go to heaven. Poor passengers to pay the price. Sad.

    Even SL people are reckless like politicians. Day by day our country is deteriorating. No self decipline.

    Negligence of an errant driver had caused the fatal accident and three precious lives have been perrished. I hope and prey that injured will be recovered soon.

    What we see in Sri Lanka is that everyone wants to go first to end up with tragic results!!!

    How many incidents like this? This is truly a land like no other

    So many accidents, and still, our drivers don't learn! Once on the road, they are always in a mighty hurry, and so, most of them end-up 'dead on time' rather than being 'late and alive.'
