Written Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan to Parliamentary Question on Effectiveness of CCTV Monitoring Zones in Deterring Motorists from Parking and Alighting Passengers in Some Areas

09 Jul 2018 In Parliament

Ms Joan Pereira asked the Minister for Transport 

a.     how effective have the CCTV Monitoring Zones been in deterring motorists from parking and alighting passengers in places where they are prohibited to do so; and

b.     how often are the CCTV footages reviewed for enforcement.

Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan:

1.     LTA has used closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras since 2014 to deter motorists against illegal parking. This has proven to be effective, reducing the number of illegal parking offences by as much as 90% at some locations.

2.     LTA’s CCTV system will automatically detect parking offences from the recorded footage, which will then be further reviewed by LTA’s enforcement team daily.
