Police Media Division announced that the Police would conduct an islandwide special traffic operation in future to maintain road discipline.

During a special operation conducted on Saturday in the Panadura and Kalutara Divisions, around 173 motorists had been charged with traffic violations including 59 tinted glassed vehicles.

The Police Media Unit said that the operation was conducted from 8.30 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. under the guidance of Kalutara DIG Ranmal Kodithuwakku.

During the operation 89 vehicles with unnecessary stickers and paintings, 21 vehicles with unauthorised horns and four unregistered vehicles were also charged.

The Unit said the operation was conducted with a view to minimise road accidents and to prevent sound pollution created by unauthorised horns.

The Police said motorists would be produced to court for violation of traffic laws. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    So how many buses were among those vehicles then?Because they are the worst, and even stuck in a traffic jam, the drivers lean on the horn.

    This is very good and please keep it up. The roads are full of unruly drivers and the only way to educate them is by fines which also gives the government a revenue.

    Tinted glass matter you have to spot equipment to check darkness. Everyday morning not enough traffic police officers in by roads in Colombo.

    Pls take some action for the three wheelers.. bring a law like in India where there are no three wheelers in the main city like Mumbai only taxis are allowed.

    So the traffic kossa's were out on Saturday to nab law breaking motorists. What do these kossa's do during the rest of the month? Raid massage parlors? Shouldn't they be manning traffic 365 days of the year.
