A little bit on road courtesy...

Over the years, the number of individuals on our roads has continued to grow... like the pace of our daily lives. At one time or another, we have all been in a hurry when driving or become lost in our thoughts, distracted, worried or preoccupied, despite the fact that driving requires our full attention and concentration!

As a result, there are times when we may perform manoeuvres that are disrespectful to other road users, or even dangerous, or perhaps engage in a behaviour that is self-centred and rooted in an “everyone for himself” attitude!

Nonetheless, the road is not the place for this type of behaviour.

Roads are public places that are shared amongst motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists and heavy vehicle drivers. All of these individuals are on the road for different reasons, move at different speeds, have different reflexes, and do not have the same degree of protection; some are more vulnerable than others!

With the new rule of cyclists not being allowed to cycle on most footpaths, cyclists are forced to use the road(did that fix anything by the way?) which puts them in quite a dangerous spot. And motorcyclists(with their own respected reasons of riding a bike) is also put in a dangerous spot since they are moving at higher speeds than bicycles, with only a helmet to protect them.

It is every individuals responsibility to drive safely and put 100% concentration when driving/riding.

When we are on the road, we are constantly in contact with one another and, to ensure a safe, smooth and harmonious flow of traffic, it is important to show courtesy, tolerance and respect all the time, or at least whenever you remember to do so. Of course some may disagree that this may be highly impossible on Singapore roads, but for those who do agree, lets do our part.
