    3 wheelers are the blessing turned curse.

    ALL 3-wheel drivers need rehabilitation and education on road use + safety before giving them the licence to ride + taxi licence.
    Accidents such as these can be avoided IF only drivers STOP at ALL railway crossings at ALL times.

    Don't know whether the crossing has placed with a gate.

    ALL level crossings cannot have gates. It is the DUTY of the Government to put up STOP Signs. ALL drivers MUST stop before proceeding.In every case it is the fault of the motorist!!

    I'm at pain to think of the surviving daughter. What would it feel like to loose your entire family and be left alone at the age of six? Whoever taking care of her, pls ensure that you give the best of your love . May Allah bless you child.

    There are many hundreds of unprotected railway crossing all over Srilanka. Govt must take very early action to install automatic electricaly operated rgates at such crossings to prevent further tragedies taking place
