Parking enforcement officers' devices capture photo evidence of offences
Forget about protesting or appealing against that ticket for illegal parking.
You may not see parking enforcement officers carrying digital cameras, but the familiar hand- held device that they use to issue summonses can now also take photos of parking offences.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) started using these two-in-one devices last month. Its enforcement officers on motorcycles use them to snap photos of illegally parked vehicles before issuing summonses.
The gadget even uses Global Positioning System satellite coordinates to record the exact location where a summons is issued.
