ROAD SAFETY ADVISORY FOR CYCLISTS

On 28 October 2020, the Police attended to a road traffic accident along the Ayer Rajah Expressway where a cyclist lost control of her bicycle and collided into a bus. She was conveyed to the hospital with multiple injuries.

Recently, there have also been videos of cyclists riding on expressways being circulated on social media. We urge cyclists to be mindful of their safety and not cycle on expressways where vehicles travel at higher speeds.

Under Rule 3 of the Road Traffic (Expressway – Excluded Vehicles) Rules 2010, cyclists are not permitted to ride their bicycles, including Power Assisted Bicycles, on expressways. Cyclists who are found riding on expressways may be liable for a fine not exceeding $2,000 or imprisonment of up to 6 months.

The authorities will enforce against road users who choose to flout the traffic rules. We also urge all road users to play their part by adopting good RoadSense and to look out for one another.
