THE LTA has issued a stern warning against vehicle owners who deliberately remove their number plates to avoid the speed and red-light cameras.

Authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia said the LTA was aware of this happening and those caught would be dealt with.

"It's been observed that some vehicle owners remove their number plates and have it displayed on their windscreens using a handwritten cardboard," Mr Sokia said.

"The LTA believes owners are removing their plates to avoid being captured by the speed and redlight cameras.

"It's a trend that has been observed when the authority introduced the cameras on the road in 2012.

"This has made it hard for us to process TINS because we are unable to access the number plates of the owners.

"Most images that are captured become invalid, creating a lot of problems for the authority.

"We are warning motorists that we will take them to task if they are caught."

He said these concerns had been raised by some members of the public, especially drivers who were hit by other vehicles without number plates.

"It hinders any investigation process by the police and LTA and we will ensure that those liable will be dealt with accordingly."
