10 more locations from 22 September 2014
1. From 22 September 2014, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will use Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras at 10 more locations to enforce against illegal parking.
2. With this implementation, a total of 30 public roads will have CCTVs to deter illegal parking. The 30 locations are selected based on the following considerations:
- A high incidence of illegal parking, typically daily and throughout the day.
- Illegal parking impedes the smooth flow of public buses, particularly where the roads serve a high number of public bus services.
- Illegal parking raises safety concerns for pedestrians and road users and/or lead to chronic traffic congestions.
- High concentration of pedestrian activities such as in the CBD, and/or proximity to popular malls, amenities and eateries.
3. Please refer to Annexes A and B for a list and a geographical distribution map of the 30 locations.
Identifying a CCTV monitoring zone
4. All 30 locations will be monitored by CCTVs for parking offences on a 24-hour basis. Motorists can easily identify CCTV monitoring zones, as they are clearly demarcated by parking restriction lines as well as signs to highlight their presence. In addition, available lamp posts or sign posts within the zones are painted with a vertical strip in a bright orange colour.
5. Please refer to Annex C for photos of a CCTV camera, signage and lamppost, and an artist’s impression of a CCTV monitoring zone. Motorists are encouraged to observe parking regulations to ensure safe and smooth traffic conditions.
6. The Land Transport Authority has been closely monitoring the 20 locations where we have installed CCTV to enforce against illegal parking. Since the implementation, we have seen varying improvements in traffic conditions along these roads as they are no longer impeded by indiscriminate parking. Beyond enforcement, we like to remind all road users not to park indiscriminately and cause obstruction to other road users.
