That 2% should be stopped happenning by banning fire-crackers. Staying with families than playing with alcohol will also prevent road accidents and violence.

I hope that pedestrians, 3 wheelers, motor bikes and push bicycles don't travel on the middle of the roads just because there are no vehicles. Passed several 3 wheelers which were virtually crawling on the middle of the galle road. Its a great danger to the other motorists. I hope that police will educate the public in the future to travel on the left side of the road if they want to crawl.

With the increase in population and the vehicles, Sri Lanka is no more in her 1960's.

The police should start charging for not following the lane discipline. three wheelers are the worst.
