The Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the Singapore Police Force (SPF) revealed in a joint press statement today that no summons were issued for vehicles belonging to President Halimah Yacob’s convoy that were flagged for waiting along double yellow lines at Prinsep Street this week.

A photo of an LTA enforcement officer investigating a car with a special number plate, SEP1, went viral online on Wednesday. ‘SEP’ is an acronym that stands for Singapore Elected President.

According to the LTA, parking on unbroken double yellow lines is ordinarily an “illegal parking offence” and offenders can be fined between $70 to $150 depending on the type of vehicle they drove.
