Colombo, Feb 18 (Daily Mirror) - A total of 793 motorists who violated traffic rules have been identified through the CCTV system in Colombo.

Police Spokesman DIG Nihal Thalduwa said video evidence of relevant offenses captured by the Traffic Division's CCTVs have been forwarded to about 300 police stations and fine papers for the offenses will be issued to the relevant drivers.

Police launched the special programme aimed at identifying motorists violating traffic rules through the CCTV system in Colombo on January 22.

Despite the programme being launched on January 22, a week-long awareness campaign on this programme was held for motorists and implimenting law against traffic violators commenced from February 1.

    Very useful program to detect the bus drivers and threeweelers who are a menace to disciplined drivers.

    ARE THERE ANY VACANCIES FOR CCTV OBSERVERS ?

    In Australia there are no police to capture offenders, all through CCTV, however in highways often highway patrol is present at random locations.

    Excellent work.please fine them and they will respect road rules.

    At many cross Junctions, road signs placed above signal lights do not match the arrows painted on the road. This makes a big confusion when driving.

    Wonder how many bus drivers and three wheelers which are the biggest menace on our roads were actually detected and fined?

    When a registered owner of a 3 wheeler (most probably a housewife who is receiving social benefits) receive a notice, they will not have a clue as to what happened because most of these are given on dry rent on a daily basis!

    I agree with chandi..some cross roads and rounderbots signal lights got no detection or arrows basic things need fixed so there's no confusion
