Written Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan to Parliamentary Question on Grace Period for Vehicles Stopping to Drop Off and Pick Up Passengers at Areas under Camera Surveillance

07 Oct 2019 In Parliament

Mr Darryl David asked the Minister for Transport what is the grace period allowed for vehicles stopping to drop-off and pick-up passengers at areas under camera surveillance before the drivers of those vehicles are deemed to have broken the law by waiting or parking illegally.

Reply by Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan:

Since 2014, LTA has used closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras to deter motorists from waiting or parking illegally. This has reduced illegal parking offences by up to 90% at some locations. LTA enforcement officers will review each CCTV footage carefully and fairly, to allow the motorist a reasonable amount of time to pick up and drop off passengers, or to load and unload goods, depending on the circumstances.
