Journey to Jaffna is always enchanting. Now it takes longer hours due to the condition of the A9 highway. The buses ply on A9 highway race and try to over take each other, but they forget the fact they are risking the lives of many who travel quite often.

A bus speeding on A9 highway toppled in Kokkaavil, North of Sri Lanka. 25 people who were on board injured and admitted to nearby hospitals.

    Hi!
    The roads are narrow and full of pot holes. Much more are the drivers of these heavy passenger vehicles. Are they expereienced and qualified to drive these vehicles. Do anybody check them?

    Enforcing rules of the road for drivers as well as passnegers urgently needed in Sri Lanka. Accidents are news of the day here.

    Thank you fro bringing up, and authorities need to pay more attention.
