    There you go .. another day. another three-wheeler. Death can come any time but the chance is tenfold when you travel with a three-wheeler.

    What will it take to ban these death traps ....they should not be used to transport people ,but goods and shopping only..restrict the speed by fitting speed limiter and ban them from weaving in and out of traffic ..impose heavier fines plus confiscate the vehicle after three offences

    3-wheelers need to be banned from Main Roads and only allowed to operate inside lanes.
