    Pointless, nothing will be done. Speeding buses is a frequent site at any time of the day. Police are around when this happens & they do nothing about it. Unless they have some target to achieve.

    This is what happens when driving licences are given for money . That plus a corrupt and bribe taking police force are the leading cause for such accidents. Heaven help Sri Lanka !
