In Singapore, there are regular road blocks being conducted in the night by the traffic police to check on drivers – especially those that are driving under alcohol influence and suspected on drug trafficking. The operations are normally conducted in the late night in islandwide scale and randomly without any fixed dates.
If you are thinking of dashing across a road block in Singapore, you better think twice. A normal road block are usually conducted with a team of traffic police that consist of few units of police vehicles as well as motorcycles on standby. In case of evading a road block, there will be no qualms they will give you a chase, usually in pairs.
Any person convicted of evading a road block shall be liable to a fine of up to S$5,000 or up to 12 months imprisonment, or both.
Despite the strict regulations and fines, there are still 17 cases of road block evasions in the first quarter of 2016.
