New PSV inspection system

MEMBERS of the public should expect a change in the type of public service vehicles (PSV) being approved by the LTA after the introduction of the new automated vehicle inspection system.

LTA spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the new system, a first of its kind for the authority, would be of great assistance to track down vehicles that failed to comply with certain LTA standards.

"This device is a new service targeting public service vehicles because of the many complaints from the public," Mr Sokia said.

"The deteriorating conditions of these vehicles will control that, it's going to be a fully automated inspection conducted and the computer will do everything without any human intervention.

"Every year, vehicles go through a fitness test to pass the vehicles, every year they renew and they come here to go through this fitness inspection."

LTA also warned drivers to ensure their maintenance system was up to date, daily inspection was valid at all times and that proper maintenance must be thorough.

"We are targeting the PSV vehicles because they are the very critical ones and we are not sure whether they have done proper maintenance.

"This is why we target them."

The full operation of the new system started last week and is expected to move to the West and North in the coming months.
