    not only for E 01. THis rule is valid for all the roads and dmamges to public property by drivers

    Govt. Revenue!!! The earnings from the highway is already 53 million. With accidents it will double very soon!!!

    Seeing how people drive in Sri Lanka is an embarrassment. Many drivers cannot stay in their lane and speed stupidly. Road discipline is paramount to getting rid of third-world driving conditions.

    No one says here it is the government fault. Amazing!

    If this was cased by negligence & over speeding it is a good decision & an eye opener for other motorists.. if it was purely an unfortunate accident it is unfair...

    Perera Gadley Wednesday, 08 February 2012 11:56 AM

    Nodrog Wednesday, 08 February 2012 02:25 PM
