The City Traffic police said that they will implement the existing law that buses, lorries, trishaws and other heavy vehicles should use the left lane within the Colombo City limits.

The law was in action but we couldn’t implement it for different reasons, Rs.550 would be fined from any offender who goes against this law, the Traffic police said. (SD)

    There will be a huge block in the roads

    anton Monday, 28 February 2011 04:07 PM

    Also this rule must apply to the Three Wheelers and Motor bikes too.

    Hopefully they'll practice what they preach! Should also implement a law for motobikes flocking to the front the moment the traffic light turns red !

    channa Monday, 28 February 2011 05:03 PM

    earlier than before....

    cyber cop Monday, 28 February 2011 05:03 PM

    I hear this almost every six months.

    Rajiv Monday, 28 February 2011 07:19 PM

    They should ban containers and such during peak traffic hours. Or during daytime altogether!

    JJK Monday, 28 February 2011 07:40 PM

    consciousview Monday, 28 February 2011 10:44 AM

    Dilan Monday, 28 February 2011 10:46 AM

    Finally !

    Loki Monday, 28 February 2011 10:48 AM

    The faster they implement the better.Most of they heavy vehicles are being driven like motorcycles

    Tharaka Chanaka Monday, 28 February 2011 10:45 AM

    This will never happen....try explaining this to a private bus driver...

    pranandu Tuesday, 01 March 2011 04:53 AM

    good move but appreciate if some kind of STERN ACTION BE TAKEN ON MOTOR CYCLIST. I said this before and say it again they are the root cause for so many vehicle misaps and strangely the traffic police is either blind towards them or is just turning a blind eye (not sure which one).

    Lalindra Monday, 28 February 2011 10:46 AM

    At what time we could come to the offices???

    dias Monday, 28 February 2011 10:58 AM

    It should be iland wide then it isok

    malkanthi Monday, 28 February 2011 11:03 AM

    Tuk tuk is the main cause for heavy traffic, they drive zig zag. But doubt the part in implementing!

    Athula Monday, 28 February 2011 11:19 AM

    Very good move , provided colombo schools should start at 0815 hrs to avoid massive trafic blocks and accidents ..

    Christo Tuesday, 01 March 2011 05:10 AM

    The Bus, lorry, trishaw and state owned vehicles are the biggest killers in the country. They have massacred more people than LTTE. Can the Police please catch the people going towards the wrong side on one way streets as a priority please.

    kassa Monday, 28 February 2011 11:38 AM

    Nice Work. But what will happen for passengers?

    prkirubai Tuesday, 01 March 2011 01:55 AM

    And a huge harvest for the police??

    Brenan Tuesday, 01 March 2011 01:58 AM

    Be positive ....what the hell anything could happen and these day pvt bus owners are much inteligent than you think..

    Brenan Tuesday, 01 March 2011 02:00 AM

    Brenan Tuesday, 01 March 2011 02:03 AM

    Konde bendapu china Monday, 28 February 2011 12:04 PM

    brrrr Monday, 28 February 2011 12:55 PM

    YP Monday, 28 February 2011 01:11 PM

    Very very very good move.....

    dilshan Monday, 28 February 2011 01:27 PM

    we will have start by teaching the basics to the bus drivers & tuk tuks.....
    Course 1 - What is LEFT ?

    shan Tuesday, 01 March 2011 03:42 AM

    very good move for a starter but the when the main roads like Galle Road is only a 2 by 2 size road, on which a 4 by 4 size Leyland bus travels, how do you expect them to stick to their lane!!!!

    First get the road widen or get those bigger than road bues out of the roads, then start implementing road rules!!!

    Bernard Monday, 28 February 2011 03:04 PM

    Excellent police thinking.Please remind ladies the saying"Ladies first" does not apply on the roads therefore they must know the rules to the last fullstop.

    DSR-Neckar Monday, 28 February 2011 03:25 PM

    All Sri Lankan drivers MUST be taught how to drive. Then punishment should be increased to the level that they never do the same trafic violation again.

    Kamal Naser Monday, 28 February 2011 03:49 PM

    Be optimistic. We should start some where.
