Traffic police to use unmarked patrol cars on the road
02:33 PM Oct 08, 2011
SINGAPORE - Traffic police will use unmarked patrol cars in addition to their normal fleet of marked cars to conduct enforcement patrols.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs & Trade and Industry, S Iswaran, said this is to ensure self-discipline and reinforce the message that motorists should follow to traffic rules at all times.

Traffic Police will also form a dedicated patrol team that will focus on motorcyclists.

The last time time Traffic Police used unmarked patrol cars was in 2004.

Mr Iswaran announced this at the launch of the 5th Bukit Batok Driving Centre Ride Safe 2012 campaign today.

Last year, there were 193 traffic accident fatalities, up from 183 in 2009.

Eighty nine were those of motorcyclists last year, while the number was 54 in the first six months of this year. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
