    These private buses and all of dangerously operated vehicles cannot be reined in soon enough.

    what can you say ! my heart bleeds for the victims.

    Just Another Citizen Monday, 24 June 2013 02:11 AM

    The ugly part is that they will be driving again in no time.

    CROW Sunday, 23 June 2013 10:05 AM

    HELL DRIVERS. POLICE SHOULD PUNISH THEM WITHOUT MERCY

    saradiyal Sunday, 23 June 2013 10:11 AM

    Disheartening to hear. Lack of discipline and proper & implementation of justice system.

    Gamini Sunday, 23 June 2013 10:10 AM

    Cancel the bus drivers licence and throw him into jail for a good number of years.

    be fair Monday, 24 June 2013 02:27 AM

    Gemunu Wijeratne.......what do you say to this. You are truly a hypocrit.I do bleed for the innocent family. Why cant the authorities take action on this, pronto

    The law for this is not tough enough.How sad for the mother.

    Mancini Sunday, 23 June 2013 10:24 AM

    Police should stop all these care less bus drivers who think they are behind the wheel of a rally car ! My goodness , the way the "race" other busses with similar routes is so scary ! To top it all off , thy play loud baila , so they get into the mood

    lkboy Monday, 24 June 2013 05:55 AM

    The most undisciplined drivers are private buses!

    Mervyn Sunday, 23 June 2013 11:04 AM

    Minimum 03 month jail sentence, sometimes one month if bribe police to hush up the case. thats the value od humans in third world countries.

    raj Monday, 24 June 2013 06:04 AM

    What will the police do when the buses and three wheelers are owned by policemen themselves?

    KaluSudha Sunday, 23 June 2013 04:47 PM

    these bus drivers are on drugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lalith Unambuwe Sunday, 23 June 2013 04:58 PM

    So what is the punishment ? Two weeks and back to the killer bus ? This is really absurd ! When we cross a double line,we get the works by the cops but these killers most of the time get away easily !!

    HANG THE DRIVER

    Mohideen Monday, 24 June 2013 06:26 AM

    Dead penalty brings nothing,this is the results of lawlessness state.

    NEUTRAL MAN Sunday, 23 June 2013 11:40 AM

    NOW death sentence can be given if Driver is responsible
    law has evolved after the catastrophic train and bus accident in which the bus driver was judged to be hanged...if you use public transportation you can see how irresponsible they are..

    Richard Sunday, 23 June 2013 12:22 PM

    you only need to travel on kandy rd, avissawela or such major highway to see these intercity buses speeding and at times on the wrong side of the road. why has the authorities failed to stop these bus operators in spite of repeated murders by these private bus operators? why cannot these services be handed over to private companies area by area to provide a proper service? the competition between these operators is what gets these drivers to race each other for passengers.
