    I wouldn't advise anyone on using the highway after sunset ! For obvious reasons.

    can somebody please tell me the speedlimit this car maintained at the time it toppled and more over yes I fully agree with @warraaa you are very correct. More over how much of rules could the country also apply its more on using your own common sense. Its like today on baseline road I see a foregin lady (white) holding her son high on her lap with no seat belt seated in the front rear seat and a sri lankan man at the drivers seat with their maid at the back and I was surprised to think of a white lady NOT WEARING A SEAT BELT. the car was a old vehicle but it did have seat belts. who should we blame for this???

    Sounds like excessive speed.

    the obvious reason no passenger seat belts worn.and infant on the lap of the mother. child seats should be introducex and people should use their brains a little more with out trying to be heros.

    IT TAKES ABOUT 9000 BOLTS TO ASSEMBLE AN AUTOMOBILE, AND ONE NUT TO SCATTER IT ALL OVER THE ROAD IN A COUPLE OF SECONDS.

    It's not obvious to me. Why shouldn't you drive after sunset? via DM Android App

    If the reasons are obvious authorities should take action.
