Published: 20 March 2018


Er Dr Lee Bee Wah: To ask the Minister for Home Affairs (a) in 2016-17, how many complaints have the Traffic Police received about noisy speeding vehicles at Yishun Avenue 1 particularly at night; (b) what enforcement action has been taken; and (c) whether speed cameras can be installed to check on the speedsters.



1. In 2016 and 2017, Traffic Police ("TP") received a total of 11 complaints concerning speeding along Yishun Avenue 1.


2. TP conducts regular patrols on our roads and mounts targeted enforcement operations at areas that are prone to accidents and speeding. For instance, TP had installed a speed camera along Yishun Avenue 1 in 2016, to deal with speeding in the area. 


3. TP will continue to monitor the situation, and further step up enforcement efforts as necessary.
