13 new conditions for private buses from next year

    Rules in the books are one thing, the rules in operation are another thing!

    Sri Lanka has a set of road rules comparable internationally but those are in the books. The rules seen in operation on the Si Lankan roads is something completely different. It seems there are no rules!

    Therefore even these 13 new conditions and the total number of conditions becoming 42 will be what is there in the books. What will be seen in operation will be something else.

    Private bus operators on the Colombo Badulla sector have taken the National Transport Authority and it`s chairman to court over the differences and the implementation between the rules in the book and the rules in operation.

    I don`t even like to talk about private buses in Sri Lanka,

    Disgusting subject, and seems no solution too,

    dirty politicians and mafia like bus company lords are in this `human flesh transport` business and killing or disabling a large no of people a year , both mentally and physically.

    Who are trying to hoodwink by adding more rules?

    If offended, the permits will be cancelled.What a joke?

    Offencers should be tried fined, business confiscated and

    jailed.This is harsh punishment but will work.
