First timers of an offence will pay the first tier fines, which is the same as the current rates.

However, repeat offenders will face second tier fines, which is on average $30-40 higher than the first tier for light vehicles and $50 more for heavy vehicles.

For example, while a first time offender pays a first tier fine of $70 for parking a vehicle on double yellow lines, a repeat offender of this offence within the past 12 months is eligible for a second tier fine of $110.

In the same statement, it was mentioned that “about half of all illegal parking traffic notices issued between 2011 and 2014 are committed by repeat offenders”. Therefore this tiered scheme targets these offenders in a bid to serve as a stronger deterrence against illegal parking.

To further deter illegal parking, LTA also mentioned that 40 locations around the island will see the installation of CCTV cameras. This follows the successful implementation of installing CCTV cameras at 30 locations this year, which had resulted in improved traffic flow in these areas.
