Machines to reduce corruption

THE soon to be introduced computerised vehicle inspection machines by LTA are expected to reduce chances of corruption and bribery.

Authority CEO Naisa Tuinaceva said the new system will limit the use of manual labour which meant a reduction in the tempering of inspection processes.

"Tests like the tolerance capacity of vehicle brakes, steering and suspension will be done by the machine and no one can go beyond that," he said.

"Once a vehicle part fails to have the tolerance rate that is recommended by the machine it will automatically fail the vehicle being tested.

"The new system will take around three to four years to be implemented in our main centres.

"The devices were identified following a successful tender.

"A three-member team from LTA visited the USA late last year to inspect the machine and signed a memorandum of understanding with the Worldwide Environment Products, a Californian-based company contracted by the authority to provide, deliver and install the devices."
