Long distance drivers need a break

The City Traffic Police yesterday warned motorists to refrain from driving long distances without a break to avoid accidents.

According to the Police a most motor vehicle accidents occur due to the negligence of drivers who are at the wheel for long durations without any rest. Referring to Thursday's van-bus collision which occurred near the bo-tree junction at Aluthambalama, Kosgoda in Avissawella around 3.30 am, a Senior Police officer of the Kosgoda police said that the van or bus driver would have fallen asleep while driving at the time. Six people were killed on the spot in the accident and eight others were admitted to the Avissawella Base Hospital following serious injuries.

City Traffic Police, SSP, Chula De Silva told the Sunday Observer that whenever an accident occurs, no driver would say that he had fallen asleep while driving. SSP de Silva therefore called upon all motorists, especially bus and lorry drivers with heavy loads to park their vehicles by the side of the road at least for a few minutes to have a rest while driving long distances to avoid accidents.
