    This reminds me of the fate of the Police Officer who did his duty, not too long ago, in charging a politician for over speeding on the southern express way!

    These are part of day to day police duties. The President does not know whether he is coming or going.

    First ask them to take off that blue and red 'namal light' fixed on the dashboard. Even 'batta' vehicles down south use those.

    All so called VIP vehicles are driven haphazardly with headlights on and pls ask for a report from IG which VIP is driven decently? and the response will be NONE

    Noor Ahmed Thursday, 01 December 2016 12:21 PM

    Will there be a policeman with a back bone to stop such vehicles?

    De Silva Thursday, 01 December 2016 12:29 PM

    How practical is this?? Best thing is to withdraw unnecessary security

    saranapala Thursday, 01 December 2016 06:45 PM

    No vehicle should be using flashing blue and red lights except emergency vehicles such as police and ambulance.That is internationally recognised. But Sri Lankan?

    Why would the President need to ask IGP, if the Police can do their duties perfectly and unbiased?VIPs can't be above the law, and this is what our Police has been not getting it right for some reasons and IGP should responsibly address this to change the trend in his department

    If anyone breaks the law he should be taken to task.Has the Police got to wait till the President tells them what has to be done? Then why have an IGP ?

    Why only checking to see if there has been haphazard driving ? What is the difference in treatment to our elected SERVANTS. If such driving by us , calls for immediate issue of a slip by the traffic police , why not for these characters as well. Some one should take it up as a fundamental rights issue in court of law
