16 April 2019 - 107   - 1

The government is considering a possibility of revising the recently amended fines for seven motor traffic offences which stand at over Rs 25,000.

Steps are being taken to hold talks with transport-related trade unions following stiff opposition raised over the amended fines, State Minister of Transport Ashok Abeysinghe told local media.

A few bus trade unions engaged in a strike action after the fines were gazetted by the Transport Ministry. However, bus owners and bus passengers association did not engage in the strike and reported to work.

    This is really a joke. Why can't the bus drivers obey rules. If they do then there won't be any fines. Most of they drives like to kill people. They are act like mentally disabled people. What they are asking is to allow them to kill people for cheap.
