A netizen shared a video showing a large group of cyclists suddenly dashing out onto the road along Shenton Way.
The netizen said that the cyclists were speeding at the time through a small side road and onto the main road.
The camcar also alleged that the cyclists were not wearing helmets or any safety gear and that the majority of them also didn’t have lights on their bikes.
Here is what he said
Encountered a bunch of cyclist speeding through a minor side road into Shenton way without stopping or checking at 10.30pm last night.
They weren’t wearing helmets or any safety gear. Majority also did not have lights on their bikes.
It is mandatory for all cyclists to wear helmets when riding on roads. Those caught riding bicycles and power-assisted bicycles on roads without wearing a helmet can be fined up to $1,000 and/or jailed up to three months upon conviction for the first offence.
Under the Active Mobility Act, cyclists are required to ride their bicycles as close as practicable to the far left edge of the roads.
They must also allow other traffic to be able to overtake them safely on the roads.
