90% of fatal accidents are caused by high speeding Buses which are never stopped by the traffic police. If anyone has seen a traffic policeman stop a bus for traffic violation please respond. You only have to observe how police ignore flying buses and charge others. I hope the government will put a stop to this carnage because the police will not.

Three wheels are designed in such a way that the riders get a false sense of safety. The canopy and the windshield do not offer any protection at all in a collision.

First of all the traffic rules Must be applied in Sri Lanka in the event of an accident. Traffic is always chaotic in Sri Lanka. Even the Police is not performing their duty on live traffic situation. Especially the Ministry of Transport seems has less interest in streamlining the traffic SAFETY FOR THE SAKE OF PUBLIC AWARENESS. A very unprofessional traffic monitoring in by Sri Lankan Police, this ignorance lead to public tragedy on Roads.
