At least one person was killed and about 46 injured when a passenger bus collided with a lorry in Galagedara, Padukka on the High level road this morning, police said. Injured persons have been admitted to the Homagama and Galagedara hospitals
This is a common scenario in our country. High time passengers obtain life insurance.

The typical local selfish driving leads to such devastating collisions.

The State requires at least 100 persons to die in one accident to jump hastily and take action. That is the culture of our legislatures.

If you travel in a private bus, not to exclude CTB buses, you will see how dangerously these drivers drive. Specially, if you a driver how drives a little vehicle like a car, you will be shocked to see how these drivers disregard road rules.
Now a days, Police do not catch these drivers. Either they are scared of them or they get benefits by allowing these idiots to drive like this. Only solution is IGP should take stern action about this and order civil clothed traffic police personnel in buses. Until this is done I do not think there will be any improvement.

I doubt even a 100 would be enough for them. In 2-weeks it'll be back to square 1!

The fact is, a majority of drivers in this country are careless, insensitive and selfish. A blast of the horn to say, "Out of my way, I am coming through."
