“To maintain law and order on the roads, the Traffic Police (TP) takes stern enforcement against errant motorist who flout traffic rules an endanger the lives of other road users,” Singapore Police Force (SPF) wrote on its post to remind the road users.

TP statistics shows that last year 4,856 motorcyclist and pillion riders were involved in traffic accidents, in which 72 death occurred during the accidents.

According to TP, its officers use a 900cc “stealth bike” in order to catch those errant motorists who tend to speed to avoid getting the tickets as driving in a car is less manoeuvrable. Often, officers would lose the law-breaker motorists in heavy traffic.

The TPs who ride on the “stealth bikes” wear black jackets on top of their white uniforms and carry their warrant cards.

The Traffic Police also warned people not to play the mobile game “Pokémon Go” and drive.

The law-breakers are obliged to be fined or put up in jail according to the law they break

Driving while using mobile communication devices

继人民币兑美元汇率跌“破七”后,美国政府认定中国正在操纵人民币汇率,25年来首次将中国列为汇率操纵国。 据《法新社》周二(6日)报道,在川普的关税威胁下,中国人民币汇率贬值破七,引发北京当局允许货币币值以抗衡美国关税威胁的臆测。报道续指,人民币并不是可自由兑换的货币,但自周一早晨,人民币一度由6.9225兑换1美元贬到7.11兑1美元,后来回涨到7.0282兑1美元。 美国财政部长姆努钦(Steven Mnuchin)周一(5日)发布声明,称中国央行的声明犹如公开承认具有操纵汇率的经验,表示“美国政府认定中国在操纵人民币汇率”,并称将与国际货币基金组织(IMF)合作,消除来自中国的不公平竞争”。 汇率操纵国指一个国家人为地操控汇率,使汇率显得相对低,令其出口价看似便宜,或会引起进口贸易伙伴批评它为汇率操纵国。由于产品较便宜,人们喜欢它的产品并减少购买本土产品。这将导致入口国就业流失。操纵国则牺牲别国利益而为本国创造更多就业机会及享受较高的国内生产总值。 对此,华中科技大学经贸系教授陈波分析,此次中国破七元关卡,是为了消耗先前累积的压力,加上美国关税威胁,而适时贬值可以分担关税的压力。 自中美两国于上周上海恢复贸易谈判后,双方并未取得重大进展,而且美国总统川普同天内宣布将对几乎全部中国对美出口产品征收关税的决定,使短暂停止的中美贸易战再次重燃战火。本周一(5日),人民币兑美元离岸价和在岸价双双破“7”,是自2015汇改以来首次处于最低位。 然而,美国方面则认为,中国通过贬值促进出口,以抵消关税带来的影响。川普随后在推特批评中方“操纵汇率”。 China dropped the price…
