Traffic lane law enforced from today

The traffic lane law will be enforced strictly in main towns from today, Police media spokesman, SP Ruwan Gunasekara said.

The two-week grace period that was implemented from May 27 for motorists to get used to traffic lanes ended yesterday.

As per legal provisions in the Motor Traffic Act of Sri Lanka, all vehicles will have to run on the left side unless they are not overtaking a vehicle or turning to the right. In addition to that, the Bus Lane Law introduced in 2015 will also be implemented strictly from today, Gunasekara said.

“The new initiative is intended to ease congestion and also to minimise the number of accidents”, he said and requested the support of all.
