Lanka Private Bus Owners’ Union Chairman Gemunu Wijeratne said that he requests that the minimum fine for engaging in begging or selling in buses be raised up to 5000 rupees.

The Union Chairman said that he had made a written request to the Motor Vehicle Transport Commissioner to include the new fine law since the Motor Vehicle Ordinance is being amended these days.

Meanwhile Road Safety National Council Chairman Dr. Sisira Kodagoda said recently that the report of the committee appointed with regard to the increase of the fine for violation of road regulations in reference to seven by-laws up to Rs. 25000 was expected to be gazetted in the first week of February.

But the Road Safety National Chairman said that the report would not bring about any amendment to the fines.
