Private Bus Associations said today President Maithiripala Sirisena assured them that there would be no traffic fine increase without consulting relevant parties.
All Ceylon Private Bus Association (ACPBA) Secretary Anjana Priyanjit said President Sirisena assured them that if the traffic fine was increased, it would be done following a discussion with the Bus Associations.
The Inter Provincial Private Bus Association (IPPBA) President Sarath Vijitha Kumara said they also decided to call off the bus strike following the assurance given by the President to consult the bus associations in the event of a traffic fine increase.
President Sirisena had agreed to appoint a special committee with regard to the issues faced by the bus operators. (Chaturanga Pradeep)
At the moment there is no active government. Everyone does what they need. Very pathetic situation.

ACPBA and IPPBA should be forced to foot the colossal amount of money that the government spends on accident victims.

White vans and Military Intelligence may be a viable alternative to fines.

Same old story. Why do you have to give in. After all the penalty is for breaking the law? Very pathetic indeed

"President had agreed to appoint a special committee with regard to the issues faced by the bus operators" Why don't you appoint a special team to catch all these drivers driving recklessly breaking the rules. This is why we'll never develop as a country

why does it need to be discussed, the penalty is for breaking the law, What utter nonsense. Why waste time and money with commissions, take a stand and show leadership
