    A New Speed Limit in Expressways to Avoid Accidents

    Mr. Bandula Gunawardena, Minister of Transport, said today that since accidents occur due to slow moving vehicles, measures will be taken to impose a minimum speed limit on highways.

    The minister says that the new rules will be published in a gazette notification within two weeks.

    He recalled at the weekly cabinet decision notification press conference that although the maximum speed limit has been set at 100 kmph, a minimum speed has not yet been set.

    He said that most of the accidents happen when passing slow-moving vehicles and it is important to fix a minimum speed limit to avoid such accidents.

    He says that he held a discussion with experts in the field and relevant agencies such as the police regarding the accidents that occur on highways.
