New system to detect speeding vehicles on expressways.

A new system to detect speeding vehicles on expressways, will be functional from today. Thereby speeding drivers can be fined at the exit points.

The Expressway Operation Maintenance and Management Division says these steps were taken to curtail the increasing number of accidents on the expressways involving speeding vehicles.

With the use of the new speed-detecting system, the vehicles will be compelled to maintain a speed limit 100 kilometres per hour and the drivers exceeding the limit will be fined.

Drivers found exceeding the speed limit would be given a photograph taken at the time the vehicle exceeded the speed limit.

The photograph would include the vehicle number, observed time and the speed at the time detected. The new system is capable of capturing these details even at night.
