    Oh no please don't issue the ticket, they will go on strike - this is what these idiots asking to kill innocent people but not to pay the penalty, what a pathetic country we are in. Everyone takes the law unto their hands.

    There should also be cancellation of diving licence. Only then will our drivers understand the severity of violating road rules.

    Cancellation of diving license?? He can go down the same road and get another DL under his dead grandfathers name this killer should be jailed for 20 years without being paroled.

    According to yesterdays news, Navy Sampath obtained fake NICs. You meant i say this driver will not obtain another Driving License?

    And these drivers are going on strike to reduce the penalties on traffic offenses. In other words Bond Style 007 - give us the licence to kill.

    Most of the bus drivers has a brain capacity of a cockroach and zero knowledge of traffic regulations. Wonder of wonderland is our system allows these thugs and ruthless parasites to obtain the buss operator licenses and employ a roach to drive a coach.

    Oh Do not increase the fines.. Let them kill more and more
