But since this was the first time they checked, nobody got fined. Meanwhile buses scare the #$% out of other road users on a daily basis, block the road even to pick up one passenger no matter where, and use their horn as if it was the most important button of the entire bus!

What about the normal buses?

Overloading of passenger to any buses basically any vehicle should be restricted by law and penalised. via DM Android App

if this was done without any hidden agenda, its a great job by NTC. Well-done.

Good work. Please check for loud speakers and sound blasts inside the bus.

Nothing NOT ONE THING is going to change with the buses until the users get a backbone and demand that the authorities carry out what they are supposed to do; but the Sri Lankan psyche is not prone to abiding by rules until forced and beaten to do it.

It is good see some form of action being considered but, while interdicting drivers and conductors why not impose a hefty fine to go with it too. The fine should be multiples of excess passengers on board. This will force owners to get the message through to their employees otherwise this will continue unabated.

As I said previously and you chose not to publish it here, until the average Sri Lankan bus rider and the authorities get some backbone, all of this is nothing but hot air. I had backbone today: I was the last passenger on 119 from Dehiwala to Maharagama and waited to get off the bus at its final halt; but since I was the last passenger, the conductor gave me hell for not alighting in the middle of the bus station in Maharagama. Well, I gave him hell and told him to do the physically impossible.

Take action against the over loaded passengers, not the bus crew.

Yes what about the normal buses? They pack people too over and above the capacity that there is no room to move a foot??
Do something about the normal buses too

Check for 177(Kaduwela - Kollupitiya) route luxury buses. They carry passengers twice the number of seats.

Sri Lankan transport system both government and public is a disgrace. Must fine these bastards.
