SINGAPORE - Traffic offenders who wish to review photographic evidence used to nab them while they were speeding or running red-lights, can do so at the Traffic Police headquarters, said Second Minister for Home Affairs S Iswaran on Tuesday .

Responding to a question by Aljunied MP Muhamad Faisal Abdul Manap, he said that photo evidence for the "vast majority" of these offences are available if they were detected by digital red-light cameras, as well as static and mobile speed enforcement cameras.

However, cases detected through officers' observations and radar guns mounted in the Traffic Police's expressway patrol cars will not have photographic evidence, he added.

For cases where such evidence is available, offenders can make arrangements to view them by calling the Traffic Police hotline at 6547-0000.

Under the law, photographic evidence is not required when issuing notices of traffic offence to offenders, even in places where closed-circuit TV cameras are in operation.

"I would like to take this opportunity to remind motorists to practice safe motoring habits and to observe traffic rules, which will ensure the safety of all road users," said Mr Iswaran.
