Yes cops and law turn a blind eye when they see buses and politicians drive like maniacs. Those scooter type bikes are worse than tuks now. Uneducated Morons ride them

We should ban trishaws and motor bikes in the country. The government once said to ban trishaws and recently said to introduce electric Trishaws. How on earth, law enforcement authorities allow entire family to ride on a small motorbike/scooter - This is uncivilized attitude. Parents with helmets and children without it. Are these parents mad to take two to three children in a motor bike!!! Please respect the right of a child. How many lives are lost in the country due to road accidents, drowning, accidents at home and many more. Please wake up Sri Lanka!!!
