    There are certain rules governing speed, lanes to be maintained condition of vehicles, etc. These need to be enforced by the police. Understand that they have a tough job on their hands during heavy traffic - but heavy traffic is almost always caused by changing lanes, using wrong lanes - you see bikes swarming all over the road, following by the big bugs the three wheelers and the monstors like the container wheelers, buses, tippers, lorries they continue to squeeze the cars off the roads and invariably the two wheelers go flying and of course the driver of the car is to be blamed. FYI on a Thursday I overtook a container truck on Prince of Wales Avenue going to the Port to load - he had bald front tyres. Dont the police have any eyes!

    Why do you assume the accident was caused by the three wheeler?

    You three idiotic comments, Don't you have the brain of a size of grain ? These sand transporting tipper trucks are the most dangerous monsters on the road.. This what should be subjected to ban or else subjected to strict rules and punishments. They are ruthless and careless devils on the road.

    Why arrest the lorry driver ? its obvious that it is the three wheel driver's fault.
