More than 400 foreign vehicles turned away from Singapore due to outstanding fines
SINGAPORE: As of Nov 24, about 450 foreign vehicles have been turned away from Singapore for failing to settle outstanding fines before entering the country, the authorities said on Saturday (Nov 30).
Singapore announced earlier this year that starting from Apr 1, foreign vehicles with outstanding fines for traffic, parking or vehicular emissions offences could be denied entry.
The initiative has been effective in encouraging foreign motorists to settle their fines, said the authorities.
They said that the period between February and September this year saw a 35 per cent increase in the rate of fine settlement for foreign vehicles, as compared to the same period last year.
The authorities added they would be raising the intensity of checks and turn-backs in the next phase of the initiative.

50 Malaysian vehicles turned away so far after foreign motorists with outstanding fines denied entry: ICA
SINGAPORE – Fifty Malaysia-registered vehicles have been denied entry into Singapore at both land checkpoints as of 8am on Wednesday (April 3), after new measures took effect on Monday.
In a release on Wednesday, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) said the clearance time for incoming vehicles at the Tuas and Woodlands checkpoints was not affected as a result of turning away foreign vehicles with outstanding fines.
All vehicles denied entry are diverted to separate parking spaces to be processed, which does not affect the flow of other traffic, the authority said.
