June 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka Police announced that the lane laws stipulated in the Motor Traffic Act will be strictly implemented in and around Colombo from today.

Addressing the media at the Government Information Department, City Traffic Director Superintendent of Police Sumith Nissanka said a special operation will be launched from today in Colombo and main roads that leads to Colombo to ensure motorists follow the lane regulations.

He said the drivers who break the lane laws will either be fined or arrested and produced before courts or directed to attend awareness raising classes conducted by the Police.

The City Traffic Director said the law is nothing new but it will be enforced strictly from today. Police had earlier provided special training to traffic Police officers on regulating traffic to follow lane laws.

According to the Section 148 of Motor Traffic Act, changing lanes must be done in a manner that does not disturb the vehicular movement in other lanes, the official said.

He said special teams will be deployed on High Level road, Havelock Road, Galle Road, Castle Street, Rajagiriya, Baseline Road and Panchikawatte Road to strictly implement the lane laws. He said about 600 mobile patrols will also be used for the purpose.
