Offence to park along expressway shoulders

Media Replies 27 Feb 2013

STOPPING along the road shoulder of expressways is a dangerous act ("Parked buses along expressway can cause accidents" by Mr Tan Yang Keat; Forum Online, Feb 9).

Unnecessary stopping or parking not only hinders the use of the road shoulder by emergency response agencies in an emergency, but also endangers all motorists as accidents could occur with other vehicles.

Both the Land Transport Authority and the Traffic Police will take enforcement action against errant motorists who stop their vehicles along the road shoulder of expressways without valid reasons.

Such motorists will be liable to a composition fine of between $130 and $160, and four demerit points.

We thank Mr Tan for his feedback and will step up our monitoring, especially along the Ayer Rajah Expressway, to deter the illegal use of expressway shoulders.
