Motorist is celebrating eight years of serving the needs of drivers and car owners this month, and we're kicking it off in style by launching the much-awaited Checkpoint feature on our app that covers all Singapore and JB land checkpoints!

Utilising our new and improved traffic camera function, app users can now view real-time traffic conditions on both sides of the Causeway in high definition. On top of that, we also provide time estimates for clearing through the various checkpoints and routes.

This way, you can now plan your journey out even more accurately from the convenience of your phone!

Accessing the new Checkpoint feature is as simple as tapping on the icon labelled "Checkpoint" on our app dashboard. Over two dozen cameras showing the traffic conditions on both borders and along the roads leading towards them will be available to you. 

They can be individually viewed by simply tapping on a specific camera. To view even more closely, you can pinch to zoom on the image.

Our Checkpoint feature will also include the Fuel Check Status function, which alerts fellow motorists on fuel checks that may be conducted at the borders.

But Wait, There's More!
