    Anton, you are right, all are sri lankan drivers,. we have to educate our drivers as to how to drive on the roads and there should be strict procedure in issuing driving licence and monitoring the drivers on the road, if we want to reduce accidents on the roads.

    Noor Thursday, 03 May 2012 10:51 AM

    End of the day, whomever and whatever said, it is traffic accident, UN nothing to do for that, The Driver is a Sri Lankan who should be punished and band for driving in the future.

    I was nearly knocked down by a UN vehicle at Kollupitiya while I was on a pedestrian crossing. Rascals think the country and everythin in it including the roads are theirs.

    PGA Thursday, 03 May 2012 02:48 AM

    It is the driver of the vehicle who is responsible, not the owner.

    Daya Thursday, 03 May 2012 02:55 AM

    Mind you drivers are Sri Lankans. Nothing to do with UN.

    DN Thursday, 03 May 2012 02:40 AM

    It is not the Vehicle , The driver is responsible.

    Chandana Thursday, 03 May 2012 03:30 AM

    Owner too responsible. He should Discipline his staff (Driver). Should not allow him to drive Carelessly
