    How dangerous the roads have become with these crazy sports car drivers and their Honda Civics

    Honda Civic is not considered a sports car, unless it's a proper Type R. Many people think normal Civic that they drive is a sports car and try to show off. And in the end its another sad story.

    In Sri Lanka most of the accidents caused due to high speed and poor tyres. If you take 100 accidents 99 of them the tyre conditions were very poor. Sri Lanka should introduce a minimum tread levels on the tyres.

    Rest in peace for who has died and a speedy recovery for the rest !!

    Well what dont understand is most of the drivers think they driver formula one - and the worst scenario is trying to show off like Ayerton Senna.

    Well there are many wannabe fools in SL who modify their normal road car into closer to sports cars. What they fail to understand is the fact that they are not made for racing! These Honda Civic, lancer etc people who modify should be banned from driving they are disgrace to this nation.

    It looks like car has been locally assembled after importing in two pieces for avoiding tax.

    This may be a result of loosing control , speeding and
    inexperienced driving.
