    Motor cyclists and three wheelers are always trying to beat the train. They have no patience. They also do not wait for their turn in a queue and they go to the front overtaking all other vehicles patiently waiting in the que. Install CCTV at trsin crossings and issue fines for these offenders.

    Confiscate their Vehicles too Tuesday, 20 February 2024 07:36 AM

    Fines, confiscation of vehicles plus jail terms should be increased for these reckless individuals. Suspend their licenses

    Never ending accidents at the railway crossing. Very sad but uncivilized Sri Lankans are the cause for many of the social evil in our country. Motor bikes and Trishaws should be banned as a mode of transport.

    At this level crossing and many others throughout the coastal region the warning signals are always on, to such an extent that people simply ignore them. In spite of the many accidents taking place at these crossings, the government and the railways department is not at all concerned about remedying the situation.

    The crossing where this incident involved has had no railway gates and it is surrounded by trees and obviously this mother was in a rush and wouldn't have noticed the train that was coming. High time, the railway department trim those trees near the railway crossings and install alarms and gates, this is over to you Transport Minister. RIP Mother and her Children.

    Hey Sambo, be optimistic, it's a message these women show how wild they could be, the skill could be used for many other things.
