Colombo Traffic violators to be monitored through CCTV

In a pilot project to be implemented in Colombo from tomorrow, traffic law violators will be booked by the Traffic Police Division using evidence gathered through CCTV and mobile CCTV cameras.

The traffic law violators will be sent the details regarding their fine or court date through post. Further, the violators will have to visit the relevant police station to collect their charge sheet to pay the fine, or receive the court date.

The project hopes to reduce the amount of traffic violations and traffic congestion seen around the country by monitoring and taking appropriate action against errant drivers.
