Given below the text of the letter to the editor sent by Fiona Kegin, who lives in the Isle Man, United Kingdom:

"Dear Sir,

Comment made by L. Jayasooriya on 31st December 2008, regarding Sri Lanken's most dangerous roads in the world.

I can agree with that, I am from the Isle of Man - United Kingdom and my brother married his Sri Lankan wife "Asha" there 10 years ago and they have 2 children. Unfortunately, he was killed in September this year on the road in Unawatuna on his moped, no-one stopped the hit and run vehicle. There are no rules and regulations, no pavements, no nothing; the roads are free to commit any crime on them. It is terrible. I am concerned for my niece and nephew who live there, people should not have to walk all over the roads, and they should have pavements.

I would help in any way I could to see an end to state of the roads in Sri Lanka.

Fiona Keggin"
