CISCO wayang level: Over 9000!

My brother noticed something interesting a few weeks ago, but I never got around to writing about it. (Sorry, I’ve just been really busy!)

A CISCO vehicle was parked very precariously along Upper East Coast Road, as follows. I don’t know the traffic rules, but apparently this is illegal, and kind of dangerous.

So my brother called the Police, who told him to call LTA, I think- who said that they would issue a summons. I believe my brother even jokingly asked whether they were really going to do anything about it, and asked if he should put pictures on Facebook- to which whoever answered supposedly said, Sure, carry on, go ahead.

Well, my brother returned that night, and noticed that the Cisco vehicle had reversed a little. But wait, there’s more! Can you see it?

There’s a traffic summons! Wow, Cisco is really on the ball, huh? But wait…

Notice anything special about the summons? Let me get a close up:

Aiyoyo! Nothing on the slip! Wayang only! Now I’m curious- are all Cisco officers allowed to have this kind of wayang summons? Is this a one-off case, or is there a system of I-scratch-your-back-you-scratch-mine? I’m not personally too bothered by this because I don’t drive, but I imagine a lot of Singaporean drivers are going to have a lot to say about this one…

    No, it’s not wayang but an exhibition – to show us what will happen when a vehicle is parked illegally and gets a summon. LOL!

    If one fines itself, does it mean the fine is written off?

    Firstly no parking within x m of junction, 2ndly no parking facing oncoming traffic! Btw i always keep a bright yellow wheel clamp in my boot for whenever i need to create a new parking lot in the mall. Sometimes capitamalls even ask me to clamp my car at a conspicious location for other drivers to see that they mean business!

    What the Cisco Certis officer did is cheating. Like using tempering the coupon. The LTA should looking to this seriously.
