COLOMBO, July 3 (Xinhua) — Three-wheel taxi drivers in Sri Lanka on Monday protested against a U.S. travel warning for tourists using three-wheelers in Colombo.Representatives of three-wheel taxi associations protested outside the U.S. embassy in Colombo and submitted a petition calling for the withdrawal of the travel warning.

I am actually amazed and dumbfounded when I read above news .Three wheeler drivers are the most arrogant .dishonest drug pedalling ,whore house running youngsters with no manners .We have read many news items about their nefarious activities and government was even contemplating to prohibit them coming within downtown area like to Delhi and Mumbai.I had many bitter experiences and I was threatened and abused by them .

Two years back MR invited them to a bash in Temple trees and expressed his support.

If three wheeler drivers keep protesting in front of the American Embassy, they are proving that travel adversary is justifiable.

Leaders of three wheeler association shall congregate all the drivers and hold a national dialogue ( Jathika Kathikawa) and take a letter to Unitised Nations Human rights section and make a complain about Americans .

This country has become so much strike infested and government is playing yahapalana  game to show the world that we are democratic and everyone is allowed to strike as they wish .

We such a democratic country and once upon a time we had a three wheeler drive who became the Colombo Mayor !

They should implement the light railway and metro system ASAP and three wheelers will slowly vanish from the  cities
