They will park their vehicles just around the Old Capitol small lanes, i saw a police van, 1 fast response car and 1 volvo S40T5 unmarked type and 1 TP bike.
    I think it's exactly the same spot. My friend did mention about long john silvers.

    Actually if you all noticed, at all pedstrain crossing (zebra or traffic lights) look around and you should see a sign with the infamous red circle with a red diagonal line on a man stepping onto the road. Behind this sign will say, PEDESTRAINS PLEASE USE CROSSING and under this sign is usually an arrow on a yellow backing pointing to the zebra crossing or traffic lights. If you're on the side where you can read "PEDESTRAINS PLEASE USE CROSSING" you "shouldn't" be booked. Well it depends on how well you know your law. These poles are "markers" for police to guage whether the person is considered to have jay walked. Not sure it's 15 or 50 metres away from the crossing.

    LOL...nice one.

    Maybe the relevant authorities would analyse precisely(need of more intergrity), the need of certain traffic installations(zebra crossings, traffic lights...etc) in correct locations would be more beneficial. (Eg. Zebra crossing along a filter road near NIE bukit timah...when human traffic is heavy...the cars line would be stretching from that zebra crossing till the next bend...which is pretty long in my opinion, and the waiting is like at least 20mins to clear the whole stretch. lol)
