    A large part of the blame falls on the traffic police who turn a blind eye on these reckless drivers.

    Only solution is to restrict by adding a device so that buses cannot speed, say 70 kmp max.

    Bus drivers for what ever reasons are highly indisciplined in the otherwise disciplined Sri Lankan society. It is scaring to drive alongside of buses.
