When will the judiciary and police enforce discipline on the roads? We have see a huge number of accidents involving buses. What action has the GOSL taken other than promise a "suba anagathayak" at every street corner?

There is absolutely no form of strict inspection on the mechanical road-worthiness of public and private vehicles or any strict punishments for reckless drivers. They escape penalties by bribing the police ... Expect more such 'accidental' deaths ...

Children are hurt and parents are anxious, that's what. Just hope and pray that none of us have to face this kind of situation.
