Parking Rules and Regulations

Under the Road Traffic Act, "Park" means to bring a motor vehicle or a trailer to a stationary position and cause it to wait for any purpose other than that of immediately taking up or setting down persons, goods or luggage. 

Some of the common parking restrictions are:

1. Unbroken double yellow lines are laid down on the road


No parking at all times on this road.

2. Unbroken single yellow line is laid down on the side of the road

No parking between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on
this side of the road, except on Sundays
and Public Holidays.

3. Unbroken single white line is laid down on the road

No parking at all times on either side of the line.

4. Unbroken double white lines is laid down on the road

No parking at all times on either side of the line.

5. Within 3 metres of a fire hydrant

No parking at all times within 3 metres on either side of a fire hydrant.

6. Within 6 metres of an intersection or junction

No parking at all times within 6 metres of an intersection or junction of any road or street.

7. Within 9 metres of a bus stop

No parking at all times within 9 metres of a bus stop (from the tip of the bus bay
(back and front) and this includes the bus bay itself).

8. No waiting sign

No parking at all times along the side of the road.

9. No stopping sign

No stopping at all times along the side of the road.

10. Pick-up/Drop-off bay:

Pick-up and drop-off points provided near public transport nodes are
meant to facilitate immediate pick up and drop off. Hence, motorists
should not wait at these bays, as this will cause unnecessary obstruction
to other motorists picking up or alighting their passengers.

11. Single yellow zig-zag line along the side of the road (offence attracts demerit points)

No parking at all times on this side of the road
and on the public footpath adjacent to the road.

No stopping at all times on this side of the
road and on the public footpath adjacent to
the road.

No stopping at all times on this road.

14. Abreast of another vehicle (offence attracts demerit points)

No stopping or parking abreast to another vehicle at
all times.

15. Within a pedestrian crossing (offence attracts demerit points)

No parking at all times within a pedestrian crossing.

Identifying a CCTV Monitoring Zone

LTA has painted lamp posts and sign posts within CCTV monitoring zones with bright orange vertical strips. In tandem, “No Waiting” signs at passenger pick-up points with CCTV cameras are installed to remind motorists that they are not allowed to wait at these pick-up locations other than immediate boarding and alighting of passengers.

Composition Amount for Illegal Parking Offences

With effect from 1 January 2015, under the tiered fines for illegal parking regime, an individual who receives a Notice of Traffic Offence ("NTO") for an illegal parking offence will be considered a repeat offender if he had received an NTO within the last 12 months from the date of his latest offence. The dates of the offence stated in the NTOs will be used to calculate the 12-month period to determine if an individual is a repeat offender.

A repeat offender may be offered composition at a higher amount as compared to another offender in similar circumstances but who is not a repeat offender. The composition amount offered may be more than 50% higher.

For illegal parking offences committed from 1 March 2017, if the first notice of traffic offence is not paid by the expiry date (ie. 28 days from the issue date), an additional composition amount of $20 will be imposed in the next notice of traffic offence.

Apart from the composition amount, demerit points are awarded for certain offences. For offences that carry demerit points, it is mandatory for the vehicle owner to furnish the particulars of the driver.
