Oral Replies to Parliamentary Questions

Oral Reply to Parliamentary Question on Photographic Evidence for Traffic Offences by Mr S Iswaran, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, Second Minister for Home Affairs and Second Minister for Trade and Industry​​

Published: 18 August 2015


Mr Muhamad Faisal Abdul Manap: To ask the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs whether there are any procedures in place to allow individuals to assess video footages or photographs of the traffic offences committed by them for verification prior to the compounding of traffic offences and, if no, why.



1. Photographic evidence is available for the vast majority of the red-running and speeding offences detected by the Traffic Police’s digital red-light cameras, and their static and mobile speed enforcement cameras. However, not all traffic violations will have photographic evidence. Traffic offences that do not have photographic evidence include those detected through officers’ observations and radar guns mounted in the Traffic Police’s expressway patrol cars.


2. Offenders can view photographs for red-running and speeding offences at the Traffic Police Headquarters, if available. Should offenders wish to do so, they can make arrangements by calling the Traffic Police Hotline at 6547 0000.


3. I would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists to practise safe motoring habits and to observe all traffic rules which will ensure the safety of all road users.
