* Sri Lanka Motor Traffic Department to conduct random checks on vehicles
Sun, Dec 30, 2012, 09:33 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 30, Colombo: The Motor Traffic Department of Sri Lanka has initiated a programme to carry out random checks on motor vehicles to check for harmful vehicle emissions.

The Department has reportedly purchased 23 instruments to test diesel vehicles and 22 to test petrol vehicles that are to be distributed among the districts.

The tests are to be carried out from next year and the Motor Traffic Department is to be assisted by the Traffic Police, Measurement Unit, Standards and Services Department and the Central Environmental Authority.

Motor Traffic Commissioner General S.H. Harischandra has said random checks would be carried out on vehicles using the new equipment.

He has explained that the new equipment would enable the police to conduct checks on motor vehicle emissions even at night.

Driving licenses of owners of vehicles with excessive emission on testing are to be withdrawn, given time to tune their vehicles and produce them to the Motor Traffic Department for inspection.

Failure to produce a successful emission test report by the due date will result in initiating legal action against the vehicle owners.
