Three Wheelers Obstruct Anderson Road

Feb 26, 2011 2:22:10 PM - thesundayleader.lk

Ours is an international school with a very large student population.  We have a Primary Section at the top of  Anderson Road, where there is a parking space for three wheelers.

Although the Three Wheel Parking License issued by the Municipality is for about five, there are more than 10 or 15 three wheelers parked there most of the time, obstructing our side-entrance along Anderson Road. There is always a traffic jam in this junction, because these three wheelers are obstructing the opening of Anderson Road.

There are traffic policemen in the vicinity most of the time, but they don’t take any action to chase them away, for reasons not known to us. We have spoken to some of these three wheeler drivers in a sensitive way, but they threatened us in filth.

You must be well aware of most of the three wheeler drivers in our country, that most of them are thugs or hooligans. It is very difficult on our part to deal with them.

Therefore, we are very kindly requesting the respective authorities to take action to cancel their parking license and make them move elsewhere.
