SINGAPORE: To deter speeding, the Traffic Police (TP) will from Thursday (May 19) deploy new police speed laser cameras with advanced features at 44 accident-prone and high-risk areas.

The 44 locations include Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 towards Upper Thomson Road, East Coast Parkway towards Airport, Nicoll Highway (both directions) and Upper Bukit Timah Road towards Jalan Anak Bukit.

These new cameras use the latest technology and are able to capture images clearly during day and night, detect vehicle speeds from a farther distance than existing cameras, and can detect front and back number plates, said TP during a media briefing.

However, the cameras are not able to capture drivers’ faces at this moment, it added.

TP has been using these manned police speed laser cameras since 2004. In February, TP said the speeding situation had improved, with the number of speed-related accidents last year decreasing by 12.2 per cent, compared to 2014.

It reiterated that more can be done to curb speeding. In 2015, there were 48 fatal accidents involving speeding, compared to 43 in 2014.
