Drivers take note!

Thought I will share this with all of you since I drive (I got this from an email):

LTA has contracted six traffic wardens from a private company at $34,000 a
year to take down the licence platenumber, make and colour of vehicles that
intrude into bus lanes at peak hours.
(They are incognito with camera in hands……so don’t expect to see a TP,
etc)

Note you can get fined $130 for dropping someone off at or near the bus
stop.

LTA has intensified their operations at the following areas:
1) Eunos Link
2) Hougang Ave 3
3) Jurong Town Hall Rd
4) Lorong Chuan
5) Orchard Rd
6) Upper Serangoon Rd
7) Upper Thomson Rd
8) Yishun Ave 2

Additional spots where speed traps were seen,
1) PIE towards airport near Toa Payoh exit, tripod mounted speed camera at
the pedestrain overhead bridge. 90km/h
2) PIE towards jurong near adam road exit, tripod mounted speed camera over
at Adam Road flyover. 90km/h
3) Braddell Road after Bishan Junction towards CTE, tripod mounted speed
camera at the pedestrain overhead bridge. 60/kmh
4) Queensway towards Bukit Merah, tripod mounted speed camera under tree
before Ridout McDonalds. 60km/h
5) Spot along Upper Bukit Timah Rd towards Woodlands Rd, tripod mounted
speed camera under tree after a curve turn – 60km/h.

Fine imposed is $170 and 8 demerit points.

  1. I can never understand the logic. Isn’t it better to drop off someone inside a bus bay where you won’t be blocking the traffic? Why the fine of $130? Then where can we drop off people?

  2. Yeah I can never understand that too. I do agree that it is better to drop someone off inside a bus bay. Its safer too. Perhaps more discretion can be exercised. Maybe the authorities do not want the buses to be blocked? I do not know too. 🙂
