A TOTAL of 1423 offending vehicles were captured by LTA's speed and red light cameras during the first three months of this year.

Quoting from LTA's first quarter operations report, spokesman Iliesa Sokia said 794 drivers were issued with traffic infringement notices.

Mr Sokia said LTA was exploring new ways to capture vehicles that failed to affix proper number plates, as well as those using temporary or hand written plates.

"The authority would like to reassure all motorists that there is enough number plate stock in the country," he said.

"Both the Central and Western regional offices have the capacity to process over 100 number plates daily.

"LTA is contemplating mounting a massive nationwide snap, stop and check operation specifically on vehicles without number plates."
