Police is planning to initiate strict action against dilapidated buses and vans that are being used to transport schoolchildren.

The Police Traffic Unit Chief ASP Manoj Ranagala made this announcement when addressing the media on Thursday (26).

Ranagala said that a survey had been conducted with the help of several Deputy Inspector Generals (DIGs) during which these dilapidated vehicles used for transportation of schoolchildren were inspected.

According to ASP Ranagala, it was found that most buses operating as school transport service are buses that have been taken out from passenger transport service due to their unusable and unroadworthy condition.

Ranagala said that vans used for school services are also the same like these dilapidated buses that are used and that there is very poor maintenance being done on them due to which strict measures should be taken on this serious matter.

After conducting a survey with the assistance of motor inspectors, prohibitory orders were issued in this regard, ASP Ranagala said.

ASP Ranagala pointed out that this was a serious issue and also stressed on the fact that innocent lives can be lost due to the lack of safety measures.
