    President Premadasa did a very wise thing by installing bamboo barriers at rail crossings and by that generated employment to some rural youth. Present day politicians use public funds only to pump fuel into their vehicles and do not think about common man.

    Can't we make ignoring railway signals a criminal offence for drivers? Specially for bus, three-wheal and van drivers.
