The use of the meters has been made mandatory for all three-wheelers with effect from today.

Chairman of the National Council for Road Safety , Dr Sisira Kodagoda, said that the commuters should be informed of the price charged for a kilometer of travel. He added that they will be launching a special program with the police in order to crack down on three wheel drivers who do not follow the new regulations.

The new regulations are part of an extraordinary gazette that was introduced on the 9th of January. The gazette notes that it is the duty of a driver to issue a receipt of payment and that it should include the distance traveled, vehicle registration number, amount charged and the date of receipt
