    Threewheel must ban is Sri Lanka without delay

    No way, we have 4 million of them and they are a vote bank for the Politicians. This time, overtaking from the left which was to have a fine of Rs. 25,000 was removed bcos of consideration towards the three wheeler vote.

    I am not a proponent of out right banning. Look at our public transport which is in a horrible and neglected state. First, improve the public transportation and then talk about banning three wheelers.Also, have very strict exams to issue driving license.

    Many more have to die to ban three wheels...isn't it?

    It will happen when Sirisena's son or Ranils wife or Mahinda's son die in a three wheel accident, until then lets hope it happens.

    there is no need to ban.. rather restrict the number in a district or have "no tuk zones".
