before 1970's their was law against riding bicycles double and without lights. That was the time when respectable legislators were found in parliament and the police were competent and professional. After the buffaloes from the village took over our legislature, even such simple laws have been thrown out.

Traffic police ignore bycycles without lights, overtaking from the lefthand side. The 500 rupee note comes from double line and single line crossing which is absurd without taking the situation in to consideration

Very good. What about heavy flashing headlamps of some vehicles?

The people who drives on Galle Road in nights experienced this since many years back, along with other factors like drunk cyclists and motorbikes in town areas, 3 wheelers and motorcycles pulling in from urban gravel roads to main road (Galle Road) to high speed traffic at high speed without even worrying to look, vehicles driving at night with one burnt headlamp, vehicles going at 10kmph in a double lined 70kmph limited road making the drivers behind frustated, stopping the vehicles just besides a double line so we can overtake them if we are willing to pay the fines, headon overtakes without proper distance or speed management... and many more etc s.

It should be made compulsory for cyclist to have lights after 7pm at night. A law should be enacted.
