Drivers evade cameras

A FEW motorists are deliberately removing their vehicle number plates to evade LTA's speed and red light cameras, says authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia.

Mr Sokia said the trend was observed since the authority began introducing speed and red light cameras on the roads in 2012.

"The Land Transport Authority will seize and impound any vehicle without a proper number plate," he said.

"Motorists are warned to fully comply with the number plate regulation as the authority's enforcement division has been directed to impound vehicles not complying with the requirement and hunt down those who try to evade the authority at operation time or at any checkpoint.

"We are appealing to motorists and the general public to report any case of vehicles without proper number plates to the authority on toll-free number 08003342886 by informing the authority the colour, make, model, travelling time and the location."

Mr Sokia said this information was sufficient to trace and capture violators.

"Captured images can also be posted on the LTA Facebook page to help the authority locate offending vehicles," he said.
