DRIVERS BEWARE: LTA TO INSTALL CCTVS AT 30 LOCATIONS TO DETER ILLEGAL PARKING
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will install closed circuit television cameras (CCTVs) at 30 locations to deter illegal parking.
The CCTVs will be installed progressively from the second quarter of 2013. All of them will be installed by 2014.
The 30 locations are public roads which have a high incidence of illegal parking, which made it difficult for public buses to operate.
The LTA decided to expand the use of CCTVs, after it tried out the device along Beach Road (in front of Golden Mile Complex) and at Marine Parade Central (in front of Parkway Parade Shopping Centre).
The LTA found that they were useful in nabbing people who park illegally.
