LTA to invest in innovative technology: Simpson

January 14, 2019 8:25 am

The Land Transport Authority will use more innovative technology in an effort to increase road safety says chief executive Samuel Simpson.

Simpson says while there are already cameras installed in various hot-spots around the country, new methods can be implemented to strengthen this enforcement.

He says changing the drivers and pedestrians mind-set towards road safety is at the top of his priority list.

“There are other methods that we can use – using speed cameras and using red light detection cameras.”

Despite being in the country less than two weeks, Simpson has assessed where improvements can be made.

“We have a very important strategy which will be available in the next couple of months – which is the LTA strategy which will take us through the next number of years. This will be made public later on.”

In the coming days, the LTA will also strengthen its information campaign in various divisions.
