Starting on April 1st, or April Fools Day as the day is more commonly known by, foreign motorists must pay their outstanding fines for their vehicles in Singapore if they want to enter Singapore. If fines have not been paid, they could be denied entry. Singapore’s authorities are no longer fooling around, it seems.
The authorities also reminded the motorists to retain the receipt by which they had paid their fines for verification purposes on their next visit to Singapore. This move was actually already announced back in February, and represents part of the efforts to strengthen enforcement against these offences carried out in Singapore roads.
However, it was not made known how many foreign vehicles have actually failed to pay their fines, and still continue plying Singapore’s roads.
