The Kandana Police had caught a 17-year-old school girl, in uniform, driving a school van and had stopped the van and taken her into police custody yesterday (20).
The Traffic OIC of the Kandana Police had spotted the young school girl driving the vehicle and dropping off several students off at several schools in the area. He had followed the van and when she stopped to drop another batch of students off he had requested her to hand over her license and registration. When she admitted that she did not possess a valid driving license he had asked her to come along with her mother to the police station to collect the registration book of the vehicle, which he confiscated.

If her father was a doctor, will you be proud if she sits in and prescribes medicines when her father is away?

Buffalo is spot on. If the teacher is ill, you won't get the lesson from her ten year old daughter or if the driver is ill, you won't expect his 12 year old to drive your wedding car will you?

That's a stupid comment pal. A driver has to take the responsibility of all the children in the van like a doctor, who has the responsibility of the patents under his or her care. He is spot on. Your problem is what we call the Sri Lankan problem, where our people don't take driving as something you don«t have to master, but just learn to changing gears.

I totally agree with Buffalocitizen. She is risking her life as well as other children's life. Anton will you allow your kids to travel in that van?

True. Both a doctor and a driver have a big responsibility on others' lives.
