The All Ceylon School Children’s Transport Association revealed to NewsRadio of problems created by the current fuel crisis.
Secretary of Association, Lalith Chandrasiri said van drivers are currently waiting in long queues for two to three days.
Therefore he proposed that vans transporting school children need to be given special permission at petrol stations to show their permit and obtain fuel promptly.
Chandrasiri said a majority of individuals employed in the transport sector have been inconvenienced due to the fuel shortage.
He warned that drivers transporting children must get adequate sleep before their journey, and revealed that it was not possible due to queues created at petrol stations.
Chandrasiri said he informed authorities to give priority to School Children’s Transport vehicles.
