Sri Lanka has started using satellite technology to monitor the movements of buses in a bid to “detect and control misdeeds” committed by drivers. The buses would be monitored to ascertain whether they run according to time tables and whether they follow the stipulated speed limits, said a statement by the government Information Department, reported IANS. The movements of the buses would be displayed on digital screens at monitoring centres, and errant drivers would be instantly advised to follow rules over satellite phones placed in the buses.
