on the Adoption of the TruCAM
Sri Lanka Road Development Authority recently purchased five TruCAM laser speed guns that will be used for speed enforcement for the National Highways and Police Departments. The Southern Expressway in Sri Lanka has had a total of 11 accidents on the expressway with most of them due to speeding related incidents. This has brought to the attention to the Traffic Police how important it is to implement the new speed detection process of using the TruCAM sooner rather than later.
SSP K. Arasaratnam, Director for Traffic Administration and Road Safety told the Sunday Times, "New technology equipment named the TruCAM Laser Gun will be used to detect speeding on the expressway. This laser gun can also detect vehicles approaching from a 150 km distance."

The Sri Lanka Highway Development Plan is also opening new highway as well as rehabilitation efforts to improve and maintain existing roadways.
The TruCAM laser speed gun has a built in video camera that can capture a complete chain of video evidence along with a high resolution image that identifies the vehicle make and model, license plate number and facial characteristics of the driver. Developed in 2009 (?) by Laser Technology, Inc, the TruCAM is considered the final word in traffic enforcement due to the indisputable evidence it produces. Read about the TruCAM laser speed gun.
