    Sri Lanka could set an example to the world, by comprehensively removing “traffic law enforcement” from the police and handing it over to a newly formed Traffic Agency, staffed by university graduates, exclusively dedicated to all land traffic in the country.

    Preventable, many of accidents are due to negligence of three wheelers, buses and truck. Drunken drive is contributory. Strick laws and replacement of three wheelers with small cars.
