    Sirisena's contribution to lawlessness of the country to get petty popularity.

    This is a test of strength for the President. If he fails, nobody will have any respect for him as a weak President. All vehicle drivers are well aware of the gross and blatant violation of the traffic laws by these buses and three-wheelers. There must be a good deterrent.

    these bus and tuk buggers should be taught a good lesson. increase the fine to 40k ..

    President should not get involved in these unreasonable demands. Yes indeed it is a shame for MS to get involved.
