The Department of Motor Traffic is preparing to introduce a high tech number plate for vehicles from next year onwards, to track vehicle movements. 

The Commissioner General of Motor Traffic, Jagath Chandrasiri noted that the process is at an experimental stage.

He added that measures are underway to introduce the system for vehicles, by mid next year.

A Radio Frequency Identification system is to be introduced to the new number plates which will help police to detect vehicle movements.

The system is similar to that of the current communications system permitting the tracking of mobile phones.

Through this high tech system, the Police will be able to obtain information on vehicle movements as well as information on vehicle registration.

It is believed that the system would be effective to obtain information pertaining to accidents and crimes.
