    i hired a Van to Galle.
    The driver cant even keep the vehicle on the left lane even when there is no vehicle visible in the front.
    i noticed that the vehicle was pulling to the right may be due to no wheel balancing but he thinks if he drive fast then vehicle got to be right lane !!
    mad guys on the wheel !!

    It is not due to the Hybrid technology, just bad driving. Did some wanted to have the speed limits increased.
