    killing 140000 innocent people and so many mothers is not the way of saving mother lanka. He must have killed so many people and see this is the promotion he got leaving his family alone.

    Drivers in uniform or politicians on the road are always in an almighty hurry. I fail to understand the reason for their haste other than their bloated egos. Sadly valuable lives are lost. But more tragically innocent bystanders are killed or harmed. Please learn will you?

    Our fellows will never learn lessons from others. When they learn only when they are about to die of an accident. They never think of their children and their well being. What a nation we are .

    Very valuable lives? All live are valuable.

    We should not forget that the two soldiers had a hand in the war and all respect should be paid to them for saving mother lanka..
    May you rest in peace and the whole nation salute you for a job well done.

    Please bring the vehicle and display it in front of Fort Railway Station so that the public will know what over speeding can do.
