Sadly our agencies are still not too clear about communicating on safety issues on the roads, especially on the cyclists perspective.
It seems like no one agency is owning the Cycling piece.
Try goggling these keywords. "Cycling safety in Singapore and rules". This wordy link by Singapore Police force pops up first on the search engine and also this video link at the end. I think it's looking really sad.
I embedded it here so many can see the video.
Ok, perhaps I am too critical. It's a start but it really felt like a SHELL CSR advertisement.
Here's another absure video link in the document I found as well.
Its all too easy to complain and say how things are not good. It's a national Singapore trait I suppose haha.... jokes aside.
I reflected on myself and asked..... Could it be made better and communicate clearly to all how to be safe on the roads. I want to share a video tips by Transport of London - SG equivalent of LTA.
It is really a good information(without fluff) for both cyclists, motorists and Drivers. It will help reduce the friction and misunderstanding. The format and presentation is clear and easy to understand. There is no ambiguity and clearly states out how we can all do our part to make the roads safe. Watch it and tell me what you think.
Lastly, I do hope with the newly formed National Cycling Plan Committe (which the general public have no knowledge what's happening/ who's involved); can take a leadership role in making cycling safer for all. Cycling is not just on the PCN but also on the roads and may I say...gasp.... pavements too.
I strongly believe every cyclists wants to follow the traffic rules but it seems the current road situation leaves much to be desired. Perhaps with a video similar to the above TFL version, the situation can be slowly reversed.
