LTA Introducing 40 More CCTV Locations & New Measures From Jan 2015

CCTV Sign

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is introducing new measures to deter and reduce illegal parking.

About half of all illegal parking traffic notices issued between 2011 and 2014 are committed by repeat offenders.

To reduce the number of repeat offenders and thereby the overall number illegal parking offences, LTA will introduce a tiered fines regime from 1 January 2015 to serve as a stronger deterrence against illegal parking. Under the new regime, motorists who receive their second Notice of Traffic Offence (NTO) within 12 months will have to pay a higher tier of fines. This is the first adjustment to illegal parking fines in two decades.

To illustrate, a motorist caught parking a light vehicle along unbroken double yellow lines will be fined $110, instead of $70, if this is the second NTO he has been issued within 12 months.

The number of demerit points, which are meted out for more serious illegal parking offences, will remain unchanged. NTOs issued prior to 1 January 2015 will not be taken into consideration when applying the tiered fines regime.

Illustration of How the Tiered Fines Regime for Illegal Parking Offenes Will Be Implemented

A motorist was issued four Notices of Traffic Offence (“NTOs”) arising from illegal parking of a light vehicle on four separate occasions:

$110.

$70As this NTO is issued for an offence on 31 Jul
2016, which is more than 12 months from the offence date of his last illegal parking NTO (20
Jun 2015), the fine amount will be $70.

Listing of the Various Illegal Parking Offences for Light/ Heavy Vehicles and the Respective Tiered Fines With Effect From 1 January 2015

Under the tiered fines for illegal parking regime, an individual who receives a Notice of Traffic Offence (‘NTO’) for illegal parking will be considered a repeat offender if he had received an NTO within the last 12 months from the date of his latest offence.

The dates of the offence stated in the NTOs will be used to calculate the 12-month period to determine if an individual is a repeat offender.

CCTV cameras will be installed at 40 more locations

The installation of CCTV cameras at 30 locations earlier this year to enforce and deter illegal parking on a 24 hour basis has resulted in significantly smoother traffic. LTA will install CCTV cameras at 40 more locations.

“Since the implementation of CCTV cameras, we have observed improved traffic conditions along some stretches of roads which used to suffer from obstruction caused by indiscriminately parked vehicles, such as along Beach Road, Bishan Road and Pasir Panjang Road. Besides improving traffic flow for cars and other road users, our bus commuters have also benefitted from smoother traffic along these roads. We will continue to monitor the situation and review the need to install CCTV cameras at more locations,” explained Dr Chin Kian Keong, LTA’s Group Director for Transportation and Road Operations.
