Government will not waver on minimum traffic fine ) Ravi
Nov 13, 2016 07:43 pm
The government will not waver in its commitment to make Sri Lankan roads safer by instilling a greater sense of discipline and respect for traffic rules" Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake said today'

He said that lawlessness" including the rampant disregard for road rules" was one of the biggest problems in the country' Over 90 percent of the proposals received by the finance ministry in preparation of the budget called for discipline in all areas with strict adherence to the laws of the country'

Responding to a demand being made by private bus operators to abolish the proposed minimum traffic fine of 2"500 rupees" Minister Karunanayake said that the move was aimed at saving thousands of lives of motorists as well as pedestrians'


“Why are the private bus operators so much against the law” asked the minister' He noted that a section of bus operators making such a demand amounted to a tacit admission that they are frequent offenders' According to police reports" so far this year" nearly 3"000 people have been killed in traffic accidents making Sri Lankan roads among the most dangerous in the world' This is a dubious honour that we must shed' This also surpassed the number of people killed annually in the decades)long separatist war'

The motive of those who oppose the fines appears to be that they want the government to give them a free license to kill at will and get away with highway murder' During the extensive consultations the finance ministry officials had with the public before finalizing the budget" a recurring demand was for the government to take bold measures to tackle indiscipline on the roads'


All sections of society were united in calling for tougher penalties so that law abiding motorists and innocent pedestrians did not have to suffer at the hands of reckless and irresponsible drivers'


The  traffic fines proposed in the budget  were not a revenue measure" but designed to be a deterrent to ensure that there will be no repetition of offences and there would be an improvement in the safety record of the roads' Therefore" the private bus drivers" or for that matter any other motorist" need not fear the new fines as long as they obey the rules and only those who habitually violate traffic rules will have to pay the fines' Police have also reported that traffic congestion was compounded by undisciplined driving and inconsiderate behaviour of some motorists'
