    Three cops riding on one motorcycle???
    Yep....the first fault is with the police officers!!!!!

    Who broke the law? Must be a mistake. Srilankan policemen never break law. They must have been travelling in a trishaw.

    Three passengers and a driver in a trishaw was enforced. So I guess 3 adults on a motorbike is also approved. If a cop sets the standard we will follow.

    Yes the same I wanted to ask too, how come 3 in one motorcycle, I guess this law was only applied to 3 Wheeler's and not 2 Wheeler's

    MTM Saturday, 19 May 2012 05:51 AM

    Not more than three passenger on three-wheeler and two passenger on motorcycle as per law, this is an example for those who ignore the law.

    Also the law is different when the police gross red signal and no "U" turn slogan

    Law makers are the law breakers !!

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 19 May 2012 09:30 AM

    Generally, the law enforcers are the real law breakers.

    Await the IGP's comments...

    ranru Sunday, 20 May 2012 01:34 AM

    Very same guys would have arrested if 3 civilians were found riding one m.bike.

    Nodrog Sunday, 20 May 2012 01:48 AM

    Twos company...threes a crowd!

    R.I.P.

    I want to re-iterate the same sentiment by several others. It was unfortunate we lost 3 lives. But is this is happent off duty or on-duty. If it is on duty then we have a serious breach of trust and decipline. IGP high time to watch your own people...

    Its sad that none of the comments above have any sympathy/empathy to 3 human beings who woke up in the morning not knowing that that would be the last. instead we are having a derisive debate on law enforces being law breakers.

    khan sharaad Monday, 21 May 2012 07:00 AM

    sympathies for the men and families, but the law 2 persons on a motor bike is for safety, they paid the price for not obeying the same law that they should have enforced.
