A three-day special operation will be conducted across the country from today to inspect the worn-out tyres of vehicles, police announced.

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said about eight people were killed in the past 24 hours due to fatal road accidents.

He said faulty conditions of the vehicles are the root cause for the accidents.

DIG Rohana said the Divisional SPs, SSPs and OICs have been told to conduct operations to detect vehicles that are running with worn out tyres.

"If a person found to have committed a traffic offence using worn out tyres, he could be fined up to Rs. 3,500 and if anyone was found injured by such vehicle, there is a possibility of imposing a fine of Rs. 25,000 in addition to the ordinary penalty imposed for causing injury," he said.(Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)

    This is call counter productive. Here brain works in opposite direction. First reduce tyre prices so people can change tyres often.

    Lol.. local tyre manufacturers seems to be using the government to sell there tyres. Sugar scam followed by a possible tyre scam. Seems this government is becoming a joke like previous government..

    Better late than never. Also please think of introducing a CORRUPTION FREE Driver training school for potential Bus and heavy vehicle drivers. These people should then have a certificate to show that they have been properly trained. Then only should they be allowed to drive such vehicles. MM

    Not just tires, police should check all safety related devices on a vehicle. Give a citation fine on the spot and once the vehicle owner fixes the issue and upon examination by police, the fine should be reduced to an administrative charge. This is the practise that is followed in developed countries. Having said this, with the recent bus incident, the negligence should he outright given to those local authorities who neglected their road safety measures. Their negligence led to this unfortunate incident. Warming their chairs to earn a salary should not be their duty of call.
