Feb 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka police spokesman Prishantha Jayakody says that the laws against offensive pedestrians will be strictly enforced with immediate effect.

Accordingly, the police will fine or produce in court the pedestrians who violate road regulations.

Police request from public to use marked crossings to cross roads properly and to obey the traffic signals for pedestrians when crossing roads.

Traffic police sources say that the Sri Lankan people are extremely careless regarding road rules as pedestrians. Not using the pedestrian crossings and walking along the left side of roads cause many accidents and traffic congestion.

Sri Lanka police are now enforcing traffic laws strictly against the motorists as well.
