SINGAPORE - The Traffic Police will start installing new digital speed enforcement cameras at 11 locations across Singapore from March 1.

A total of 20 such cameras, which will operate round-the-clock, are expected to be up by the end of this year.

In a press release, the Traffic Police said 278,545 motorists were caught for speeding last year - a 6.5 per cent increase from 261,540 cases in 2013.

The number of people who died or were injured in speeding-related accidents also went up from 42 to 46 in 2014.

The cameras are equipped with enhanced features which can simultaneously detect up to 32 vehicles and can better identify vehicles. They also come with a wireless feature so there is no need to use film.
