The driver of the car which was driven on the expressway in a reckless manner with a group of men has been summoned to report to the Expressway Division Police Unit along with the passengers.

Police Spokesman DIG Ajith Rohana said the driver of the car as well as all those who travelled in it dangerously will be prosecuted.

The original owner of the car is a resident of Peradeniya Road in Kandy and in 2015 he had sold the car to a person in the Akurana in Alawathugoda, the DIG said.

Police said two persons including the driver who were involved in the incidents are residents of the Alawathugoda Police area and they have been informed to report to the Expressway Police Unit along with three other passengers.

Police launched an investigation after the video circulated on social media.

The video shows that four persons on board the sedan, had lowered the shutters and were seated on the doors facing each other from both sides of the vehicle.

Their unruly behaviour had caused disturbance and distraction to the fellow motorists who were driving along on the expressway. (DSB)

    During the so called Big Matches in Colombo, I have seem worse violations of traffic laws. This is how the law is applied in Sri Lanka and was highlighted by the UNHRC.

    The way authorities handles Covid 19 is also recklessly: vaccinating young healthy army and police, MP's, even friends and family of doctors get priority. Investigate that too, DIG. ( oh, I am sure you and your family had your vaccine too already)

    Ok good. If they come with VVIP persons then only you wil take the action?

    They should be prosecuted for their dangerous and being a hindrance to other vehicles using the high way. These what you called uneducated fools. Arrest their parents also for bringing them up like animals.

    Schools thaught this kind of thoughts during Big Match periods. So they follow without knowing its against the road rules .

    Sold 7 years ago but not updated. Is it one of the tax free permit vehicle which was sold in black market ?

    Ranaweera Monday, 12 April 2021 12:05 PM

    Confiscate their car as state property, cancel their driving licence for 2 years, jail them for 2 weeks. And give good publicity. So that others know what happens when they do this type of activity. Otherwise , this will continue and some innocent people may loose their lives.

    Arent the Expressway Police patrolling the highway? They should be pulled up first. Another Police inquiry?

    Jose Mo Monday, 12 April 2021 04:39 PM

    Waste of public funds trying to arrest these goons. First arrest the Expressway Police for not apprehending these guys.
