Singapore, 29 November 2022 – The National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) carried out a joint enforcement blitz yesterday (28 November) near the Woodlands Checkpoint as part of a multi-agency effort to remind motorists to adhere to our environmental and road safety regulations. A total of 66 fines were issued to errant motorcyclists caught for vehicular offences. Refer to the Annex for photos of the enforcement operations.

2               The breakdown of offences is reflected below:

OffenceNumber of Motorcyclists

Excessive Noise Emissions25
Failing to comply with technical and regulatory requirements (e.g., improper licence plates)24

Compliance with Safety and Emission Requirements

3               All vehicles, including foreign-registered vehicles entering Singapore, must comply with stipulated safety and emission requirements, such as Singapore’s exhaust and noise emission standards under the Environmental Protection and Management (Vehicular Emissions) Regulations. The licence plates on these vehicles must also be properly displayed. Motorists with foreign-registered vehicles that are found to be non-compliant may face penalties and/or be denied entry into Singapore at the land checkpoints.

4               From 6 April 2023, local motorcycles registered before 1 July 2003 and all foreign-registered motorcycles are required to meet emission limits of 4.5 per cent Carbon Monoxide (CO) by Volume; and 7,800 ppm Hydrocarbons (HC) (for 2-stroke engine) or 2,000 ppm HC (for 4-stroke engine).

5               Reducing vehicle exhaust and noise emissions will help to achieve and sustain a clean and healthy living environment in Singapore. Foreign motorists entering Singapore with their vehicles are urged to play their part to keep our environment clean and safe. NEA, SPF and LTA will continue to conduct regular enforcement and ad-hoc enforcement blitzes against errant motorists.

6               All motorists are also reminded to abide by the traffic rules and adopt good RoadSense to keep the roads safer for everyone. The authorities will not hesitate to take firm action against errant motorists who choose to flout traffic rules and regulations.
