    cops do not enforce road rules as they are benefitted anyway. the innocent public are the victims of the lawlessness.

    Terrible rate of accidents involving buses

    Recently I heard in ITN that SL is one of the best private bus services in Asia. How reliable that information was. Suba Anagathayak!

    Keep it up Sri Lanka, it is part of the break down of law and order with non-accountability. More and worse things to come in the future.

    If we had proper law & order in this country, obviously none of these things would happen. But sadly that would never be.

    Yes the police do not do anything about traffic violations such as this. In fact they turn a blind eye at most times. It's a known fact that they drive like maniacs & it is always the innocent that suffer.

    This is murder, and once again nothing will ever be done about it. We will never hear of the words 'Justice has been served'.

    The two drivers must have been thinking about "Suba Anagathayak"

    not at all

    Thursday, 11 February 2010 07:45 AM

    Because of neglecency of the drivers innocent people sacrify their lives. This is one way reducing population. and burden

    Hey, guys do not blame police only., see they are busy with other activities for the past few months or so. You realy know their work load per day from attending to flush politicians toilet bowls to make their day off with a massage. Who gives a sh.. about the values of normal people, they have VIP to take care.

    I have never seen a bus stopped by a traffic cop - at Thunmulla they stand near pittala people but they do not check any busses not giving way to smaller vehicles at roundabout - they see but ignore.
