    Default Traffic Police Ops during peak hours

    Nowadays a lot of TP ops during peak hours. I feel not relevant as:
    1) Too crowded to speed.
    2) Can cause serious accidents if kayu drivers see them and do e-braking.
    3) They should be on the ground channeling traffic instead of on overhead bridge catching speeding.

    haha, this makes me laugh, singapore and traffic police haha, non existant!!!! Singapore does so very little in the way of traffic policing and probably has some of the worst drivers i have ever seen!

    I have always wanted to bring 10 UK traffic police out here to see what they think, i bet they would have writers cramp in 30 secs flat due to the amount of tickets that would be flying around!!!

    care to share where they are deployed?

    You are right man. I am almost kill on my bike when a mercs driver jam his brakes upon seeing the traffic police on the bridge even though not speeding.
    What's the fear when you didn't break the law?

    You know what, i encountered a tai tai driving skyline on lane 1 in expressway at 60 KPH. All the cars behind pile up and start honking at her. She never give way and droved on while all the cars made dangerous passes on her. Sad that such a good machine is being mistreated the way that it is being driven.

    I ever encountered a lady who ebreak at the east coast erp coz she forgot to put her cashcard. Literally stop in the 2nd lane to look for her cashcard. That is at around 830am... super crowded. The whole bunch of cars behind her all press the horn at the same time... then she moved....


    All for a lousy $10 fine. darn.

    Here's the deployment places that I have noticed:
    1) Cameras on overhead bridge
    - CTE from AMK ave 1 towards AMK industrial park exit
    - PIE from Toa Payoh towards Stevens road exit

    2) WRex deployment areas
    - CTE from AMK ave 1 towards AMK industrial park exit
    - PIE from clementi towards jurong town hall exit
    - SLE from yishun to mandai exit
    - Dairy Farm road

    That's all I can remember

    Er, Traffic Police not just catching speeding drivers, also catch (some examples)
    - hogging on fast lane
    - illegal U turn, or change lane at double white line etc
    - dangerous driving
    - etc etc

    Stupid idiot indeed. She should have just gone through the gantry and then gone to the LTA office and paid up. LTA allows you to pay the amount due and waive the fine as long as you come forward and 'confess' that you passed through a gantry without a cashcard. Of course, do this ASAP or they'll slap you with the full fine...
