* Private bus owners in Sri Lanka blame authorities for the accidents involving public transport buses
Mon, Jan 20, 2014, 08:47 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 20, Colombo: A private bus owners' association in Sri Lanka has blamed the authorities for the fatal accidents involving public transport buses.

The Lanka Private Bus Owners' Association (LPBOA) says the inability of the National Transport Commission (NTC) to regulate the country's bus service has resulted in the accidents involving long distance buses.

LPBOA Head Gemunu Wijeratne told the media that the NTC instead of regulating the bus service, was only interested in collecting monies from the inter-provincial bus owners.

The inter-provincial buses that are engaged in long distance travel are therefore not properly regulated.

The recent increase in accidents involving long distance buses has resulted in many deaths in the past few weeks.
