    Everytime a new govt or new official comes they implement as a new idea. This is the same old thing and the police shld continue. Bloody sick of this

    I fully endorse this, and wish the Police will be successful in execution. 3 Wheelers will be lost

    Never gonna happen, nobody knows how to drive properly here, i always thought that marking the lanes in Sri Lanka was just a waste of paint. When are they going to introduce/enforce a no horn policy? At the moment it is used pointlessly 99% of the time.

    Why is this law changing from time to time? Police should put up a notice on the road when the law is going to be (strictly) implemented. Otherwise, it ia a joke.

    Why implement it over several times? Just implement the law every day for heaven's sake

    It will ease the poor traffic Police Officers for a certain extent.

    We need adequate roads to fully implement this. If peak time restrictions and no parking on roadside with regular traffic police patrol will help to deter errant drivers. Furthermore, encourage car pooling to the downtown Colombo to prevent congestion.
