Authorities also found 13 of them driving without a valid riding licence and using a motor vehicle without insurance coverage.

Motorists urged to adhere to traffic safety

In light of the excessive number of offenders, NEA has once again urged motorists to adhere to Singapore’s regulations.

All vehicles, including foreign-registered ones, must comply with safety and emission requirements. This includes Singapore’s exhaust and noise emission standards.

The licence plates on each of these vehicles must also be on display properly.

Those who violate these regulations can face penalties. Officers may also deny them entry into Singapore at the land checkpoints.

Members of the public can assist in this regard by reporting errant motorists on the following platforms:

NEA – for feedback regarding exhaust emissions:

SPF – for feedback pertaining to road safety:

  • Feedback on road users on SPF website
  • Lodge a police report at any neighbourhood police post or via SPF e-services
  • Traffic police information hotline: 6547 0000

LTA – for feedback about technical and regulatory requirements:
