DIG Traffic gets new duties

Lucky Peiris, the former Director of Traffic, has assumed duties as the head of the Police Traffic Administration and Road Safety Division.

Deputy Inspector General Peiris has also been placed in charge of special operations in the city of Colombo from last week.

He has specialised in traffic-related matters and introduced Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) reports for urban development projects when he was Director of Traffic.

DIG Peiris is a member of the National Road Safety Secretariat and represents the Police Department and the Inspector General of Police at Parliamentary Select Committee hearings.

The Traffic Headquarters is responsible for conducting educational programs in schools to create road safety awareness among students and DIG Peiris has already initiated new tools to step up traffic educational demonstrations.
