Thread: Traffic Police and their toys

    Angry Traffic Police and their toys

    Today 09 Feb 07 at 6pm along AMK Ave 6 towards Yishun, saw a TP dismounted from his bike and holding some handheld instrument and peeping into the view finder at motorist! His device is not mounted on a tripod.

    Some new toys again and what does it do?

    The SWD(Speed Warning Device) is an old device that has been around for decades. Most are currently using the Speed Limiting Device. Basically, it cuts off the amount of fuel into the injector once the pre-set speed is attained (e.g. 60km/h). Like all devices, they are not tampered-proof. That explains why heavy vehicles in Singapore can still travel of speed above 90km/h even though they have such devices installed.

    TP bikes armed with radar guns are not new. It was in the papers ~2years back already.

    Handheld speed devices were used by our police during the 70s & 80s. They were dangerous. Back then traffic police officers would pop out from the bushes in the middle divider along PIE to 'shoot' at potential speeding motorists. It was a natural reaction to apply brakes. Myself had done it and also experienced following behind motorists jamming their brakes. Imagine everybody stepping on their brakes suddenly on the highway. Some how , they stopped using it and seemed like the SAF Provost Unit took over. Could see MPs 'shooting' SAF vehicles. Then it also faded off. Don't know why they are using these devices again. Perhaps they have forgotten the dangers.

    Drive safely. If one's sticking to speed limits, one need not fear.
