NUISANCE BICYCLE GANG OCCUPYING 2 LANES & BLOCKING TRAFFIC

A large group of bicyclists, numbering over 50, were reported to be occupying two lanes and blocking traffic in Singapore. The incident has sparked concerns over safety and the need for stricter enforcement of traffic rules for cyclists.

Many netizens have expressed their frustration over the lack of action from the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the police, with some calling for cyclists to be banned from the roads altogether.

Cyclists are required to conform to a maximum of five riders in a single file or ten if cycling two abreast. However, the large group in question failed to adhere to these rules, causing inconvenience and potential danger to other road users.

The LTA has implemented new cycling rules in recent years, including mandatory lighting and helmets for cyclists riding at night, as well as restrictions on where bicycles can be ridden. However, some netizens feel that these measures are not enough and that stricter enforcement is necessary.

The issue of bicycle safety on Singapore’s roads has been a contentious one, with some arguing that cyclists should be given more space and recognition as legitimate road users, while others feel that they pose a danger to themselves and others.

Regardless of one’s stance on the issue, it is clear that all road users have a responsibility to follow traffic rules and prioritize safety. The LTA and the police have a role to play in ensuring that these rules are enforced and that all road users are held accountable for their actions.
