    These things can't be done effectively in the middle of the road. These arrangements should have been in place before enforcing such restrictions. Blank stickers mean that its like broadening the doctor symbol misuse.

    How about vehicles 'roaming' within the City of Colombo? They would neither Enter nor Exit...

    Our government is learning "on the job" in the middle of a catastrophe.
