  1. If you think your loud-sounding car is safe from the authorities just because you stay in a private property, you might want to think twice now. A photo of a Ferrari 488 GTB being inspected inside someone's front yard has been circulating around in most car group chats over the last weekend. From what we understand, it is almost unheard of for LTA enforcement officers to venture into a non-public area to inspect a car that might be flouting the laws. While we are unsure of the reasons while this particular Ferrari is being looked at, we reckon the reason might be neighbours who are unhappy about the loud exhaust noises emitting from the car. On a side note, those who are in the know will wonder why the officer is looking under the car when its belly is all covered up... Check out what neitzens on SG Road Vigilante have to say about this. Let us know if you agree!
  2. Did these ppl ride on public road?? If yes, then suck thumb. If not, they can just ride all they want in a private property without LTA/TP jurisdiction.
  3. LTA Fines Bikers Parking On Pavement In Orchard, Netizens Ask For Temp Lots As Solution source: https://mustsharenews.com/delivery-riders-pavement/ Delivery Riders Can’t Park On Pavements, Netizens Suggest Temporary Parking Lots Technically, parking your bike on a pavement is illegal. However, sometimes there are reasons for temporary parking, especially for delivery riders. Yesterday (2 Oct), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said they fined several delivery riders parking their bike on the pavement in Orchard Road. This comes after news reports of the amount of bikes parked in the area. However, this didn’t sit well with many riders, who said there aren’t enough parking lots in the Orchard area. They call instead for a solution to the problem, which is that there isn’t enough grace period for them. LTA fines delivery riders parking bikes on pavement Officers in plain clothes were out and about, looking out for bikers breaking the rules. The New Paper reported on 1 Oct that there were many bikers parked along the Orchard area, especially near Shake Shack. They were largely there to pick up orders from the fast food restaurant, but there aren’t any proper parking options nearby. One of the images LTA posted prominently features a GrabFood bag on the bike. This offence is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and/or up to 3 months’ jail. Netizens ask for solution to delivery riders on pavement However, the comments were quick to point out a seeming flaw with these fines. That is, there appears to be insufficient parking lots for bikes in the area, and the ones available aren’t cheap. One netizen points out this fact, and asks for a solution instead of the negative fining approach. Such as, a designated parking area for delivery riders. Others ask for some leniency as it’s not as though they are parking their bikes there for the entire day. MP raises issue of lack of temporary parking lots You might recall that the issue of delivery riders and their problems was raised by an MP in Parliament. Hany Soh of Marsling-Yew Tee GRC had received feedback that delivery riders tend to run into fines because of their need to park temporarily to drop off or pick up their food.

  5. From this video, one of the conclusions we can draw from it is when you have just been given a ticket by the parking officer, threatening him on whether he knows who you are or not isn't going to help you get out of trouble. As seen on SG Road Vigilante's recent post on 23rd of September 2020, the offender has just gotten a parking ticket along Sturdee Road North and can be seen trying to video down the whole confrontation with the officer who just gave him a ticket. Obviously not that good at redeeming himself, the owner of the video tries to 'put pressure' on the officer by asking him whether 'he knows who he is?' and claiming that the officer is less clear about the laws than him. If you are curious as to what happens next, catch the video below and let us know how you would react if you happen to be in such a situation.

    https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/lta-to-streamline-rules-governing-taxis-private-hire-cars SINGAPORE - A long-awaited move to impose tighter regulations on private-hire operators is finally on the way. The Land Transport Authority said on Thursday (Jan 24) that it is proposing to license all street-hail and ride-hail operators, "as they provide the same fundamental service of transporting commuters from point to point". This is a stark change from the time when these newcomers arrived six years ago, when the authority viewed them as "tech companies" and not transport providers. The LTA said on Thursday that regulations will also cover companies which provide pre-booked chauffeured services. Observers expect changes to harmonise regulations governing taxis and private-hire players. The LTA noted that the change will be "different from today's regulatory framework, where one set of regulations apply to taxi operators which provide both street-hail and ride-hail services, and there are no uniform regulations that apply to operators that purely provide ride-hail services". It said a new regulatory framework "will replace the existing Taxi Service Operator Licence and Third Party Booking Registration Certificate". The LTA is also looking at ways to improve safety, but gave no details on how it intends to do this. Preliminary statistics from motor insurers indicate road accident rates have crept up since the arrival of private-hire firms. On the commercial side, the new regulatory framework will allow drivers freedom to drive for whomever they wish. The framework will "allow LTA to prohibit all operators from having driver exclusivity arrangements", the authority added. The Straits Times understands the Public Transport Council will eventually see that both taxi and private-hire companies adhere to the new regulations. When asked, the PTC said it was more appropriate for the LTA to reply. An LTA spokesman would not comment, merely saying "more details on the review will be made available when ready". The LTA is seeking public feedback on the proposed changes. Those who wish to have their say can do so via http://bit.ly/PCDP2P, or e-mail jiaksai@lta.gov.sg by Feb 21.

    Code of conduct for pedestrians

    http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/keep-to-the-left-and-stay-alert-first-ever-code-of-conduct-for-pedestrians-kicks SINGAPORE - Pedestrians should stay off shared paths, stick to footpaths if possible and keep to the left unless they are overtaking another pedestrian. They should also refrain from using their mobile phones while walking on such paths for their own safety. These points were stated in the first-ever code of conduct here involving pedestrians, which is part of measures first proposed late last year by the Active Mobility Advisory Panel. The code of conduct for users of public paths had previously focused on device users, such as cyclists and e-scooter riders. The updated code of conduct kicked in this month, together with a new rule banning those under 16 from riding electric scooters unsupervised by adults. Another new rule bans device users from using their mobile phones while riding. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Tuesday (Aug 4) that the recommended habits for pedestrians will complement existing active mobility regulations and guidelines for other path users. "We will continue to engage and educate the public on how all can play a part in fostering a safer and more responsible path-sharing environment," said LTA. "A campaign encouraging all users to be more gracious on our paths will be rolled out at the end of the year." The code of conduct recommends these key points for pedestrians: stick to footpaths and pedestrian crossings when available beside shared paths, keep left on all paths, and stay alert when walking on paths. According to the code, pedestrians should stay alert and pay attention to their surroundings when on a footpath or shared path. They should also "refrain from using a mobile communication device or operating any of its communication or other functions - such as listening to music - in a manner as will prevent the pedestrian from detecting danger or oncoming obstacles". The various measures were proposed and introduced in response to a growing number of fires and accidents involving e-scooters last year. However, such issues have been reduced following a ban on e-scooters on footpaths, among other preventive measures. National University of Singapore transport infrastructure expert Raymond Ong said the code of conduct involving pedestrians makes sense from both a safety and an infrastructure perspective. "It makes more sense for pedestrians to keep on their paths for safety reasons... you also want pedestrians to understand that we have a huge role to play in ensuring our own safety," he said. "We don't have a lot of physical space (to create separations between paths), so it is more about shaping behaviour and trying to make the environment more conducive for walking and cycling." He said that research has shown that distracted driving, riding and movement leads to an increased risk of accidents and a pedestrian who is not distracted will be better able to avoid them. Dr Ong added that the lack of mechanisms to enforce the code of conduct is not the issue here but what is important is to educate the public. "Enforcement is something that is very reactive, but to educate and transform such that these behaviours become more like intuitive-based actions is more important," he said. But not everyone agrees with the updated code of conduct. Mr Francis Chu, the co-founder of cycling group Love Cycling SG who previously sat on the AMAP, said it was unnecessary. “Formalising keeping to the left while walking can cause some aggressive riders to shift the blame to the victim,” he said, citing a hypothetical example where in case there is an accident, a device user could blame a pedestrian for not keeping to the left. Mr Chu said certain pedestrians, such as the elderly and young children, may not be able to keep left and be alert at all times. He added that the onus should be on cyclists and PMD users to keep their device in control and ensure the safety of pedestrians. Mr Chu said: “If the main objective is safety for all path users, aren’t the two simple rules of riders giving way and keeping a safe distance from pedestrians sufficient? “It is important to not have a code of conduct for walking and ruin a relaxing walk that elderly pedestrians deserve.” With the banning of underage riding of e-scooters without supervision, the code of conduct for path users has also been updated to include a section for supervisors to refer to. Adults supervising young riders should keep to one rider at a time and have him or her clearly in their sight. They should also educate the young rider about safe riding and the relevant regulations.

  12. Car owners can bring vehicles for inspection from June 8: LTA source: https://mothership.sg/2020/06/private-car-inspections-after-circuit-breaker/ Economic activities are gradually resuming in phases in Singapore after the end of the circuit breaker on June 1. Vehicle inspections to resume From Monday, June 8, inspection centres authorised by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will be allowed to resume vehicle inspection services for private cars, LTA said in a press release on June 5. Inspections for private cars had previously been suspended during the extended circuit breaker period, although goods vehicles, buses, taxis, private hire cars, and motorcycles were still required to go for inspections as scheduled. Owners whose inspection deadlines were deferred will receive notification LTA said that vehicle owners who had their inspection deadlines deferred previously due to the circuit breaker measures will receive a notification informing them of the scheduled month of their inspection. These vehicle owners are "strongly encouraged" to adhere to the scheduled month indicated, and to visit the inspection centres alone, and not in groups. They should also avoid weekday peak hours from 10am to 2pm where possible, LTA said. They must also abide by safe management measures, including using SafeEntry to check-in and check-out when entering and leaving the inspection centres. Inspection deadlines previously extended Previously, the deadlines for private cars to undergo periodic vehicle inspection were extended by six months, for inspections due within the circuit breaker period, or within three weeks from the end of the circuit breaker period. This would apply to deadlines falling on or before June 21, 2020. LTA also previously said that it would allow the road tax for such private cars to be renewed for six months, provided they have valid insurance coverage.
  13. If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! If there's something unbearable like the loud exhaust from an RX-8 (I think it’s an RX-8), who you gonna call? LTA! LTA takes your complaints seriously In a post uploaded on SG Road Vigilante, a video and various images of 2 LTA officers checking out the undercarriage of an RX-8 has gone viral. Here's the link to the long video (might take awhile to load because it’s 4mins+ long, I suggest skimming through the video). The story behind this Apparently, a "pek cek" (exasperated) neighbour could not take the sound of the car’s exhaust and made a complaint to LTA. The neighbour even left a note for the owner of the car. Online Chatter I can feel the passion from this comment. Very interesting plot twist. I think the neighbour will have to lan lan suck thumb, wear earplugs. Err. LTA stands for Land Transport Authority. If you want to complain Have a neighbour with too much money and owns a car that disrupts the peace of the neighbourhood? Call LTA @ 1800 2255 582 The officers will come down to investigate in no time.

  17. Supporting Cleaner and Greener Vehicles for A Sustainable Land Transport Sector 1 Under the Land Transport Master Plan 2040, we have committed to encouraging adoption of cleaner and greener vehicles for a more environmentally sustainable land transport sector. As part of Budget 2020, Government is introducing measures to facilitate adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs), which is one of the cleanest and lowest-emission vehicular technologies available today. We have also reviewed the road tax framework to better reflect the current trends in vehicular efficiency and parity with Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles. EV Early Adoption Incentive 2 Today, EVs incur higher upfront ownership cost as compared to equivalent ICE vehicles. EVs are becoming more affordable, and the ownership cost gap between EVs and ICEs is expected to close over time. However, this ownership cost gap is currently a significant barrier in the adoption of EVs. To address this, we will launch an EV Early Adoption Incentive (EEAI) for the next three years, from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2023. Owners who register fully electric cars[1] will receive a rebate of 45% off the Additional Registration Fees (ARF), capped at $20,000[2]. This EEAI will lower the upfront cost of an electric car by an average of 11% and narrow the upfront cost gap between electric and ICE cars. This scheme will apply to individual and fleet vehicle owners, such as taxi and car rental companies, and will cost Government an estimated $71 million over the next 3 years. Annex A illustrates the rebates for a few common EV models. Revised EV Road Tax Structure 3 We have reviewed the EV road tax schedule[3]. The revised schedule will apply to all new EVs registered from 1 January 2021 onwards and is shown in Annex B. 4 Currently, ICE vehicles incur fuel excise duties through fuel consumption. Owners of fully electric cars have thus far not been subjected to fuel excise duties. To enhance parity with ICE vehicles until we are ready to impose a distance-based tax, we will impose an additional tax of $700/year for fully electric cars, which is sized to partially recover for the fuel excise duties paid by equivalent ICE cars. 5 To cushion the impact, the Government will phase in this additional tax over three years (see Annex C for the phase-in schedule). The full quantum will be charged from January 2023 onwards. 6 As part of the revised EV road tax structure, we will also revise the methodology for calculating the variable component of the road tax for EVs, which is tiered by power rating, to better reflect the current trends in vehicle efficiency from January 2021. This will lead to an across-the-board reduction in this variable component of road tax for EVs and some hybrids. 7 In summary, the revised electric car road tax schedule will comprise: An additional flat component of $700/year, phased in over three years; and The existing variable component tiered according to power rating, and which will be revised to better account for improvements in vehicular efficiency; and 8 Under the revised road tax framework, mass market electric cars will incur an annual usage cost[4] which is still about 9% lower than their ICE equivalents. Electric Motorcycles and Electric Light Goods Vehicles (LGVs) 9 From 1 Jan 2021, the additional tax will also be levied on fully electric motorcycles ($200/year); and fully electric light goods vehicles (LGVs) and goods-cum-passenger vehicles (GPVs) not exceeding 3.5 metric tonnes ($190/year). Details on the treatment of electric buses, heavy goods vehicles, and GPVs heavier than 3.5 metric tonnes will be announced at a later date. Petrol-Electric Hybrids 10 For petrol-electric hybrids that currently pay road tax based on their maximum electric power rating, we will align their road tax schedule with the revised variable component of the electric car road tax schedule. Since these vehicles remain largely petrol-fuelled, we do not intend to impose the additional flat component on them for now. Overall, these hybrids will have their road tax reduced by an average of 29%. 11 LTA will inform existing EV owners of the implications of the revised road tax schedule on them, in due course. 12 These measures will complement the Government’s efforts in expanding the public charging infrastructure for EVs. Together with other existing and new instruments, such as the Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES), the Commercial Vehicle Emissions Scheme (CVES)[5] and Early Turnover Scheme (ETS), we will support the long-term adoption of cleaner and greener vehicles for a more sustainable land transport sector. [1] This includes electric taxis. [2] Subject to a minimum ARF of $5,000. [3] This includes electric taxis. [4] For ICEs, this includes road tax, fuel excise duties, fuel cost, insurance cost and maintenance cost. For EVs, this includes road tax, electricity cost, insurance cost and maintenance cost. [5] The CVES is a new scheme, for which details will be announced at MEWR’s COS.

    Eh LTA! Don’t touch my car leh!

    An image of an LTA officer checking the undercarriage of a Mazda RX8 with a flashlight is circulating on WhatsApp group chats and social media. In the image (see full image below), we can tell that this incident happened sometime at night and it's at a HDB estate. Image taken from Roads.sg Just so you know, LTA officers are obligated to come down and visit you whenever they receive a complaint about your vehicle. It could be illegal parking matters or of course illegal modifications, which is exactly what the LTA officer is checking for in the image. The best part about these visits is that you won’t even know about them! Upon inspection and if found guilty of modification violations, you’ll only hear about their visit through a letter from LTA accompanied with a fine/summon that will probably tear a hole through your *censored*. Why people want to “sabo” you If you’ve done modifications to your car and someone made a complaint against you, it could be a couple of reasons 1. They have nothing better to do and damn cb 2. They cannot tolerate the disturbance your car causes to the neighbourhood Generally when people complain, it’s because of No.2. What should you do if you don’t want people to call the polis? LTA has very clear guidelines as to what modifications need or don’t need LTA’s approval. They’ve also included modifications that are specifically not allowed. Everything else not mentioned, is fair game. Taken from LTA.gov.sg Keep within the guidelines and LTA won’t touch your car. As you can see, not everyone appreciates how loud your vehicles are. Especially in residential areas. Like, why? Louder isn’t always better. Facebook comments and feature image taken from Roads.sg Also, we aren't in America where we can own the car for a lifetime. It's just a 10-year lease! Don't need mod lah! Call 1800 2255 582 for the LTA customer service hotline if a car is disrupting your peace.
  22. New Road Between Punggol & Pasir Ris Will Ease TPE Traffic From 17 Nov source: https://mustsharenews.com/pasir-ris-punggol-road/ New Link Between Punggol & Pasir Ris Will Replace Existing Slip Road For those who frequently travel between Punggol and Pasir Ris via the TPE, you would know the pain of being stuck in the jam during peak hours. Since the TPE is the quickest path connecting the two areas, motorists will often prefer to take that route. But the shortest path has become longer due to the large number of vehicles, which defeats the whole purpose. Good news for motorists though, because the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has built a new link road to help ease the traffic situation. New link road will extend from Pasir Ris Industrial Drive 1 According to LTA, the new link road opening on 17 Nov will extend from Pasir Ris Industrial Drive 1, providing an alternative for motorists travelling between Punggol and Pasir Ris. Currently, motorists travel between the two towns via the TPE, highlighted in green below. However, with the new link road, motorists can now travel between the two towns on a much shorter path than before. Here’s a video by LTA to help you better navigate the new route.

  25. Hi guys, my IU came with the new car and is about 1 year old. Recently after deduction of fee from exiting a HDB carpark, the IU start to show Err SC. The strange thing is that it can still detect ezlink card/net flash pay. I have checked my Cashcard using a top up machine and I was able to read the balance so I assumed the Cashcard is working fine. Now I am still able to enter my season parking and able to pay for parking using ezlink card. Anyone encountered this before? I am contemplating to change the IU a not as next year, the new IU will be introduced. I don't wanna waste time going to LTA. On the other hand, as my job requires me to run around Singapore and I know some car park only accepts the old school chip cashcard. Zzz. Uploaded a video to show what I mean.
