For 135 hrs per month, that is about SGD 3.50 per hour.......could be true! Unless they get commission per violation, this salary is low for Singaporean standards.......

Perhaps we can spare alittle thought for others. Just imagine, if the government dun do this, many motorists will be jamming up the bus lane and the poor commuters (students & workers) whom are up early in the morning to take public transport to work will spend even more time on the road (which they already are).

As a motorists, perhaps we can move off 15mins earlier to avoid being late for work/ appointment/ etc. This way, you will not get summoned for travelling in bus lane.

To be fair, while they are catching drivers in bus lanes, they should also catch buses that drives outside the bus lanes. Buses outside bus lanes caused more congestion than cars in bus lanes!

As a motorist, i think its kinda stupid enuff to ensure that ppl do not enter bus lane, now they have to pay ppl to book them...

i mean, if they stop to alight, or park in the bus lane, then u book them, fair enuff, but if a motorist is making a turn, then u book them, then its stupid, but how is the bookie going to justify which is which? its just their eyes, hands, vs your words. everyday i got difficulty making turn to my office, and also make a turn to my place when i go home at night... y? the dotted line is just infront of my place, and the bus stop is directly adjacent to the apartment.

and y aren't they doing something to the bus lane infront of plaza singapura instead? i can think of many ideas, but i dun think they will implement thou... that red line just pisses me off...

:thumbsup: esp those who dun even give way to motorist to make turning, they always think its bus lane, and they are so packed together that we can't even make a turn if we abide to the rules... just plain crazy...

Haha i'm a motorist myself and fully accomprehend how you feel and agree that the turning distance is truly not sufficient during heavy traffic.

Knowing Singaporean motorists, the law will not be enforced if there is no enforcers. This has been proven since the implementation of the bus lane. Sad to say, attitude of most motorists in Singapore is rather negative.

bus lanes have the solid yellow lines and dotted yellow lines.. dotted yellow lines normally located at turns and junctions for car to enter. Solid yellow line means out of bounds. ;) get it? I believe they now issue summons based on photos taken. The premas wardens will be armed with a $15 carrefour tripod that extends to their belly height and mounted is a panasonic (FX-9 i think, comes in funky purple colour). You'll see him by the road side snapping away and where do you think his bike is parked? :rolleyes:

Yeah, I see him almost daily in the evening along Hougang Ave 3 at the bus stop opposite the disused SCDF Hougang Camp. He parks his bike just outside the camp. :)

that place is a nightmare.
something ought to be done there. it is so difficult to turn into the small road due to the bus stop.
