    Driving style of bus drivers and three wheelers are well known by everyone. However, very little has been done by the the authorities to punish these culprits. Also tippers transporting sand and granite to colombo government projects from various parts of the country is causing a lot of problems to drivers. They should be allowed only in the middle of the night or other means of transport should be used such as river or sea. via DM Android App
