    Three Wheeler's should run under the supervision of a company which holds responsibility of securing the customer!!

    Licence all three wheeler drivers with Taxi Photo ID.
    Should they be convicted of a crime, cancel their licence for life - simple!

    these 03 wheel drivers are a bloody curse on public roads.

    Typical tiger comment to take an isolated incident and blow it out of proportion.

    [quote name="Dee"]Three wheelers are a sign of under development. A menace to society. Should be eliminated. Worst is some of these low Budjet tourists (we mostly get them) feel this cheap 3 wheeler is symbolic of this country. Servesthe victim right for ususing 3 wheelers.[/quote]
    What do you mean, "low budget"? She had $1,800 in yen in her possession. Did she get her money back? Serves her right? Your comment is unkind.

    Suq Madique Thursday, 12 June 2014 10:48 AM

    Whatever happened to the suggestion to regulate and monitor these thugs? Like every other good intention its fallen by the way and thuggery and cheating thrives

    These three wheelers need to removed from the roads of Sri Lanka. They are driven by very rude uneducated goons.

    No wonder tourists are staying away from this country. Shame!!!!

    True Nation Lover Thursday, 12 June 2014 06:46 AM

    Government should consider banning three wheels. They are the root cause for all the road side problems, traffics, etc

    Lalith Thursday, 12 June 2014 06:48 AM

    100% agreed

    Suggestion to fix this problem, All 3w taxis must register with transport authority and only companies must be allowed to apply.

    Just Another Citizen Thursday, 12 June 2014 07:30 AM

    There are way too many of them on the road and they need to be controlled. Most of them are thugs from the area and have no regard for other including their passengers.

    Sujeewa Thursday, 12 June 2014 07:37 AM

    Hi George Clooney: What are you talking when tourist arrivals and earnings have increased more than 100% since the end of war in 2009; and also it is on a steep increasing curve? Don't make these comments without knowing facts.

    Don Don Thursday, 12 June 2014 08:17 AM

    Another incident from Kelaniya, but this time not from Hambantota.
