  2. 1st july https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/parking-ura-hdb-car-park-higher-fines-illegal-11654998 Higher fines for parking offences from July: HDB, URA image: data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAAAAACH5BAEKAAEALAAAAAABAAEAAAICTAEAOw== (Photo: Nisha Karyn) 24 Jun 2019 11:21AM (Updated: 24 Jun 2019 11:44AM) Share this content Bookmark SINGAPORE: Motorists who do not abide by parking rules will face higher fines from July, said the Housing & Development Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). In a joint press release on Monday (Jun 24), HDB and URA said the move would ensure that “parking fines remain an effective deterrent”. “The fine revision will only affect errant motorists, and will not impact those who abide by parking rules,” they added. ADVERTISING Fines for parking offences were last reviewed in 1991. ILLEGAL PARKING OFFENCES For parking their vehicles illegally, motorists will soon face higher fines of S$35, S$70 and S$100 respectively for motorcycles, cars and heavy vehicles. Advertisement Currently, the fines are S$25, S$50 and S$80. “From 2016 to 2018, an average of about 260,800 notices were issued each year for illegal parking,” said HDB and URA. Such cases included instances where motorists parked their cars in motorcycle or heavy vehicle parking lots, as well as non-season ticket holders who had parked their vehicles at season parking lots. COUPON, DIGITAL PARKING OFFENCES Fines for coupon and digital parking offences will also be raised, said HDB and URA. Currently, drivers of cars and heavy vehicles who park without a valid parking coupon or do not activate a digital parking session would face a S$30 and S$40 fine respectively. From July, the fines will be increased to S$40 and S$50 respectively. There will be no change in the fine quantum for motorcyclists, who currently face a fine of S$8 for such offences. Those who exceed their paid parking sessions will also face stiffer penalties. The current fines for over-parking range from S$6 to $20 for cars, and S$12 to S$40 for heavy vehicles. This will be increased to a range of S$8 to S$24 for cars, and S$16 to S$48 for heavy vehicles. There will be similarly no change in the fine quantum for motorcyclists, who currently face a fine of S$4 for such offences. HDB and URA said that from 2016 to 2018, an average of about 573,000 notices were issued each year to motorists who either did not pay the parking charges or had paid an insufficient amount at coupon parking car parks. “For car parks where the Electronic Parking System (EPS) has not been implemented, motorists can either use parking coupons, the Parking.sg app or the OneService App to pay their parking charges," said the authorities in the press release. PAYMENT EVASION OFFENCES AT EPS CAR PARKS Those who evade payment of parking charges by tailgating other vehicles or bypassing car park gantries at EPS car parks will also face higher fines. Currently, motorcycles, cars and heavy vehicles face a fine of S$25, S$50 and S$80 respectively for such offences. “To further deter errant motorists, the fines will be increased to S$35, S$70 and S$100 for motorcycles, cars and heavy vehicles respectively.” About 4,400 notices have been issued by HDB and URA annually to motorists for evasion of parking charges.

  7. I was looking around for a used car and the car salesman said HDB will not chase offenders for parking fines.. I checked and saw that some cars has multiple fines dating back 3yrs not paid.. Strange..
  8. about 1-2 years back, i encountered something similar with a LTA enforcement officer. I stopped at a roadside with engine and hazard light on to pass an envelope to my client who was waiting at the pedestrian walkway. My back was facing my car less than 2 metres away, this LTA enforcement officer(outsourced type) suddenly came by and immediately stopped his bike in front of my car and started keying into his handheld system. My client told me about it and i quickly approached him. This is all less than maybe 1 min? I spoke to the officer very nicely, saying my engine and hazard light was on, i was just beside the car. I ask if he saw me beside the car, he replied yes. Then why am i summoned for parking? TRAFFIC ACT CHAPTER 276: “PARK” means to bring a motor vehicle or a trailer to a stationary position and cause it to wait for any purpose other than that of immediately taking up or setting down persons, goods or luggage. He just smile back at me sarcastically and asked me to go and try to appeal. Then i took a video with him admitting that i was beside the car and HE SAW ME THERE. (since he asked me to appeal, i want to have some evidence to back up my story) I wrote in to appeal but rejected with the following reason "We have consulted the involved officer and that an offence have been committed." This is with me stating that i have all the photo and video evidences of the said incident. I was really busy that period, i did not follow up and just paid the fine. It is not about the money, but you should have seen the look on that guy face...
  9. Hi All, Would like to ask if it is possible to request for installment payment for outstanding traffic fines which has been referred to sub court. If possible, where can i go to to or contact, to request for installment payment? Thanks

    MDA Fines Singtel, So What?

    Here we go again another fine, left pocket to right pocket. How does this help the viewing public who suffered the brunt of the disruption? Its just another revenue collecting opportunity for MDA. And SGD90k is not even coffee money for singtel. The other issue is that after many years of negative reception and multiple "failures to launch" sinktel has dropped MioTv brand and instead adopted a new name "SingtelTV". Fer me this is old wine put in new bottle. Why even bother? In the past sinktel simply bundled the hidden cost for MioTv subscription to internet subscribers and forced us to accept this er "free product" as part of the ISP package. The bottom line is that public viewing on sinktel channel will remain low because 99% of the content is free and available on the internet. http://www.marketing-interactive.com/mda-fines-singtel-tv-disruption/

  12. what do you guys think of this development? i personally feel that it's a change in the positive direction, considering the gravity of the consequence, i.e. death. having said that, it's fair to say that there'll also be those situations where, e.g. the jaywalker's gross negligence may be the primary cause of his/her own death and it has to be then investigated and proven in court. p/s - a car cam is becoming more important - i got to stop procrastinating and get the damn thing installed. ------------------------------------------ Court: No more default fines for negligent drivers 20/05/2014 on mypaper http://news.omy.sg/News/Local-News/story20140520-264376 A SPECIAL court of three judges, led by Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, yesterday overthrew a longstanding sentencing practice of imposing fines for causing death by negligent driving. "It is important to signal to other drivers that they must be mindful of the terrible risks they take upon themselves and other road users when they drive when not fit to do so," said CJ Menon. The court made the ruling as it allowed the prosecution's appeal and handed down a four-week jail term to 27-year-old Hue An Li, a sleep-deprived driver who crashed her car into a lorry carrying foreign workers in March last year. The impact caused all nine workers seated in the back to be flung out, killing one on the spot. Last September, Hue, a casino surveillance officer, pleaded guilty to causing death by a negligent act and was fined the maximum $10,000 and banned from driving for five years. The prosecution appealed to the High Court, arguing that she should be jailed for her "gross negligence" in driving after she had not slept in 24 hours. Under the law, the offence carries a jail term of up to two years, or a fine, or both. But, generally, the courts have imposed fines. In a 1993 case, former CJ Yong Pung How ruled that if death was caused by a negligent act, a fine would suffice in most cases. In Hue's case, the district judge, explaining why he gave her a fine instead of jail, cited the 2012 case of Ng Jui Chuan, who fell asleep at the wheel and hit an elderly couple in Upper Thomson Road in November 2009. Mr Ng's $9,500 fine was upheld by a High Court judge, who said that driving when one is tired or sleepy is not an offence, but might be one if it had been proved that the tired driver knew he would likely fall asleep at the wheel, and yet drove. But, yesterday, CJ Menon said these cases have to be viewed with caution and that the sentencing precedents were "unreliable". He noted that the law was redrafted in 2008. After this, he said, there was no basis to continue on the premise that when death was caused by negligence, the default sentence is a fine. As for the case of Mr Ng, CJ Menon said this should not be seen as an appropriate sentencing precedent as the remarks of the High Court were in the context of the line between a rash and a negligent act. The appeal, heard yesterday by the Chief Justice, Judge of Appeal Chao Hick Tin and Judicial Commissioner Tan Siong Thye, was the first magistrate's appeal presided over by three judges instead of the usual one judge. myp@sph.com.sg

    Checking of fines

    Recently, I have been fined for parking on the double yellow line. The issue now is this. The fine is non compoundable so I have to wait for the letter to arrive to me. It has been five days since the offence (it happened on the weekend) and I have not received the letter. I have checked URA, HDB and TP websites and there is no record of my fines. Is it possible that they forgot? Just asking.
  15. Motorists who speed, beat the red light or drive carelessly within enhanced school zones will be slapped with a demerit point under enhanced road safety measures rolled out by the Ministry of Home Affairs. These zones have red textured surfaces on the road and special road markings and signs to remind motorists to slow down and look out for schoolchildren. The additional demerit point will cause a new driver who is on probation to have his licence revoked if he is caught, said Second Minister for Home Affairs S Iswaran during the Committee of Supply debate yesterday. Several Members of Parliament (MPs), such as Dr Janil Puthucheary and Mr Gan Thiam Poh, had earlier raised concerns over the increase in traffic violations, even though the number of fatal accidents decreased last year. There is also a trend of worsening road habits and behaviours, MP Christopher de Souza noted. Following a
  16. As above. How many demerits point and how much is the fine? What if I have exceeded the speed limit by 19km/h? Same fines or lesser fine? What if I have exceeded the speed limit by 30km/h? Higher fines and more demerits points? Pls advise. Thanks!
  17. SMRT and SBS have been fined by the Public Transport Council for not meeting performance KPIs. So it seems PTC is finally doing some work.... yes? FYI, the amount of the fines is truly 'mind-boggling' and surely will serve as a wake-up calls to SMRT / SBS to buck up!! you want to know the amounts? $700.00 and $300.00.... no there's no typo and no mistake in the decimal points... a driver's speeding fine looks like a million dollar 'jackpot' compared with these numbers............. and who's the chairman of the PTC?? Gerard Ee............... no less (btw, he still owes us a report on the "Review on Ministers' Salaries"..... or has he forgotten he's supposed to complete the review??

    Fines kena in JB

    Anyone can provide links to check fines kena in JB online?
  19. Photo courtesy of asiaone.com I came across this story at asiaone motoring and found it so hilarious I thought I should share it with readers of this blog as well. Its about a woman who parked at a carpark with full knowledge that her car could be clamped because there was a huge sign saying 'private property' and that unauthorized parking will result in the car being wheel clamped. And she did get wheel clamped but went to the extent of begging the attendant to unclamp her car without paying the fine. This is absolute Hollywood material.. So she parked sort of illegally since it was private property, parking attendant comes and clamps her wheel since she parked for more than 15 minutes and initially came with $100 dollars in hand but refused to pay. I don't really bother about what people say about her having a domestic helper or whether she drives a 'mid-ranged Continental' car because that doesn't really 'prove' she's rich. The main point is she came with $100 dollars in hand and refused to pay. In a normal situation, I would assume that one may try to negotiate with the parking attendant for a while but eventually, you know you'd have to pay the fine or else your car is going to sit there like a log. But this woman (probably some drama queen) went down on her knees and WEPT!! I can't believe such idiocy from a person who can definitely afford to pay the fine but refuses and cries about it. We're talking about a grown, adult lady with a domestic helper and 2 kids. Eventually her tears and sobs were heard by some passers-by who shared the cost of the fine to let her go. And I'm wondering who were these people as well. She must have really been pitiful weeping on her knees for 30 mins for some random strangers to be willing to pay the fine for her. What if it was you? Would you help her or would you let her settle her own problem? Honestly, if it was me, I'd say its her fault for trying to take the risk and weeping won't induce any pity in me.
  20. Hi, Just curious apart from HDB and URA, are there any other links to check if you gana parking fines?
  21. I hope this amendment go through. will mio tv poor performance classify under " breaches of standards of performance"? http://news.asiaone.com/News/AsiaOne%2BNew...827-234332.html TELCOS in Singapore could face harsher penalties as the government seeks to make amendments to the telecommunications act. The Ministry of Information, Communications and the Arts (MICA) said in a statement today, that it will be conducting a public consultation on proposed amendments. Among the amendments is to fine telcos more for breaches of licence conditions, codes of practice and standards of performance. The revisions are to ensure that the legislative framework is up-to-date in the rapidly changing telecom industry. Proposed amendments include the control of critical telecom infrastructure and licensees, as well as the inclusion of new concepts and business models to provide greater clarity. MICA aims to table the Telecommunications (Amendment) Bill in Parliament by early 2011 and invites views and comments to be submitted in writing by 5pm, September 24.

Daimler, the German giant behind the Mercedes-Benz automotive and truck business, has pleaded guilty to corruption charges brought by the U.S. Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and agreed to pay $185 million in penalties for its bribery practices. In a 76-page filing in federal court, U.S. prosecutors said between 1988 and 2008, Daimler paid at least US$56 million in bribes to foreign officials in at least 22 countries that included China, Russia, Egypt, Greece and Nigeria.
