The Sunday Leader

Three Wheel Association, Police Collide

By Indika Sri Aravinda

The Three-Wheel Association and the Police are on a collision course with the Association saying it will defy police orders not to have additional parts fixed to three-wheelers.
Secretary of the Association H. E. D. Prassana said that the Motor Traffic Department had given approval recently for three-wheelers to have additional parts fixed outside the vehicle.
He said that the approval was granted following talks held with Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa.
Police DIG Traffic, Amarasiri Senaratne, said that the Police will not allow three-wheelers to operate with additional parts.
He told The Sunday Leader that if the traffic police find such three-wheelers then action will be taken against them.
The Three-Wheel Association however accused the Police of acting arbitrarily despite the clearance given by the Motor Traffic Department.
They say banning three-wheelers from having additional parts fixed on the sides, front or hood of a three-wheeler will affect the business of spare part agents.
The Three-Wheel Association said it will approach Namal Rajapaksa if the Police decide to go against the clearance given by the Motor Traffic Department.

    What a stupid country we live in?What has a parlimentearin got to do with additional parts fitted to a threewheeler? There are more important things to worry about Sri Lanka that an additional parts fitted to a three wheeler.Wake up people run the country not ruin it.

    Mr.H.E. Prassanna may have determined that the three wheeler’s association is superior. So the action by police is null and void.
