it is okay to do it on a sunday?

i know it is okay to drive in bus lanes, even the whole day type, on a sunday. full day bus-lanes are in operation on weekdays and saturdays but not on sundays and public holidays. the normal bus-lanes are in operation on weekdays only.

one continuous yellow line along the side of the road means no parking between 7 am and 7 pm on the side of the road where the line is drawn, except on sundays and public holidays. so, you can park your vehicle where there is a single yellow line on a sunday.

where this orange sign is displayed at a hdb car-park, either covered or open, it means you can park for free on sundays between 7.30 a.m. and 10.30 p.m.

the electronic road pricing (erp) system also does not operate on sundays. so, on a sunday, it is free driving on all the roads in singapore. (more information on electronic road pricing available here.)

if you own a opp-peak (red number plate) car, you have unrestricted use of it on sundays. on saturdays, opp-peak cars usually come out after 3.00 p.m. on weekdays, they are not to be on the road between 7.00 a.m. and 7.00 p.m. unless they display a $20 day licence. (more info on off-peak car can be found here.)

but, these days, i seem to be getting the impression that it is also okay to park on zebra crossings on a sunday.

Yg, you should take photos of the offending cars with their registration numbers clearly seen. Then send them to the TP at the following contacts:

Tel : 6 547 0000
Fax : 6 547 4900
Email :

But a word of caution, take the photos from far away with maximum zoom... so you got time to run if the car owners discover what you are doing.

These perpetrators of illegal parking have no sense of righteousness and they are totally self-centred. They feel it's their right to park anywhere they like. As long as the authorities are lackadaisical in their enforcement, these perpetrators will continue to park illegally.

mr nah, i am also guilty of parking illegally but i won't park at zebra/pedestrian crossing because by doing so, it may lead to accidents at the crossing.

victor, actually i had all the time to take a photo of the number plate but i 'give chance'.
