IRD Announces the Award of a USD $747,200 Contract for Virtual Weigh Stations in the Country of Qatar

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - International Road Dynamics (TSX:IRD) (IRD) Inc. announced today the award of 16 Virtual Weigh Stations in the Country of Qatar. This important contract represents the first award through their partner Traffic Tech (Gulf) to supply Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Pre-Screening Systems in the country.

The 16 Virtual Weigh Station Sites will weigh trucks in motion, capture images of suspected overloaded trucks and transmit the vehicle information and images to an enforcement facility downstream. The systems utilize IRD WIM technology, powered by IRD's iSINC electronics system to provide a system to identify and provide information on specific trucks suspected of having load issues. The iSINC interface also provides internet and wireless access to the system to allow enforcement staff to monitor the truck traffic remotely.

Mr. Terry Bergan, IRD's President and Chief Executive Officer noted, "This is the first off-shore order for our state-of-the-art Virtual Weigh Station system. While initially designed for use in North America, we have been confident that this approach ideally suits the needs of off-shore customers as well. We are looking forward to this important partnership in Qatar".
