The Ministry of Transport and Highways has decided to enforce the law against drivers who drive less than the minimum speed on the highway. (Sri Lanka Latest News)
It is with the revelation that most of the accidents reported on the expressway are caused by drivers who drive at a low speed instead of the prescribed speed.
Accordingly, the Road Development Authority has been instructed to introduce a minimum speed between 60 and 70 kilometres per hour while maintaining the current maximum speed of 100 kilometres per hour.
Accordingly, fines are also to be issued to drivers who travel at a low speed in such a way that accidents may occur.
The Director General of that authority L.V.S. Weerakoon mentions that the minimum speed limit will be introduced before the end of this month.
