Didn't know that cyclists below 16 year old are not allowed to ride motorised bicycle.
Effective 1 Jan 2011, penalties include court action for some offenses which are currently not an offense. Max speed limit with power assistance - 25kmph. Above 25kmph, use your kaki power tongue.gif
Please share this information to your friends and families who possess or intend to possess a motorised bicycle.

Heavier Penalties for Motorised Bicycle Offences

1 From 1 January 2011, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) will impose heavier penalties on cyclists and retailers of motorised bicycles that do not meet LTA's technical requirements. Most of the fines will be doubled for errant cyclists and suppliers. Cyclists will face a fine ranging from $100 to $500, up from the current fines of $50 to $200. Retailers will face more severe penalties, with fines starting from $500. (Please refer to the Annex A for the full list of enhanced penalties for various offences.)

2 LTA will roll out a public education programme to educate suppliers and cyclists on safety requirements of motorised bicycles and on how to identify approved models. Posters and brochures will be distributed to community centres, foreign worker dormitories as well as motorised bicycle retailers (Please refer to Annex B for the safety requirements and Annex C for examples of a motorised bicycle that meets LTA's technical requirements versus an illegal model.)

4 Mr Colin Lim, LTA's Group Director for Vehicle and Transit Licensing said, "For the safety of cyclists and other road users, only low-powered models of motorised bicycles which are approved by LTA and affixed with an LTA seal, are allowed on public roads. With the increase in offences relating to illegal motorised bicycles over the last two years, we see a need to enhance both public education and the penalty framework to stress the importance of safety related to the use of motorised bicycles."


5 Members of the public can visit www.onemotoring.com.sg or call LTA at 1800 CALL LTA (1800 2255 582) to obtain information on the requirements before purchasing and using a motorised bicycle.

Jail, fines to combat reckless use of personal mobility devices

 

SINGAPORE — The safety of pedestrians and the various provisions to protect them were foremost on the minds of Members of Parliament (MPs) yesterday, as laws were passed to regulate the use of electric bicycles and personal mobility devices (PMDs). The new Active Mobility Act will impose penalties for offences such as riding e-bikes or PMDs on paths meant only for pedestrians, or using PMDs recklessly, but the MPs wanted more stringent regulations, such as registering all users of such devices, and making it mandatory for them to purchase third-party insurance and put on safety gear.

 

They also questioned the enforceability of these laws and expressed concern over how to deal with a potential rise in hit-and-run cases.

 
 

Under the new laws, which take effect later this year, a person cannot ride a bicycle, an e-bike or PMD on pedestrian-only paths. Subjected to speed limits, only those riding bicycles and PMDs are permitted on footpaths while shared paths, such as cycling paths and park connectors, can be used by those riding bicycles, PMDs and e-bikes.

 

Those who flout these rules can be fined up to S$1,000, or jailed up to three months or both.

 

It is also an offence if users fail to provide assistance in a car accident, while sellers face hefty penalties if they display, advertise and sell devices that do not comply with guidelines.

 

The laws come after the Government accepted recommendations from a panel on rules and norms for the use of footpaths and cycling paths, and began clamping down on errant riders through a dedicated enforcement team formed last May.

 

In her opening speech during the second reading of the Bill yesterday, Senior Minister of State Josephine Teo noted that as cycling and the use of PMDs have become more popular, some members of the public have also expressed concerns about the safety of pedestrians.

 

The approach taken by the Government is to continue to build more dedicated cycling paths where possible, while establishing a set of rules and norms for cyclists and PMD users when sharing footpaths with pedestrians.

 

Yesterday, 13 MPs debated the Bill. Noting the lack of a mandatory compensation scheme, Mr Sitoh Yih Pin (Potong Pasir) said this could leave many unwitting accident victims involving PMDs with no recourse to seek compensation for any personal injury suffered.

 

Mr Zainal Sapari (Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC) suggested banning the use of bicycles and e-bikes on the main road to those below 18 years old and making it compulsory for PMD users to have basic knowledge of the Highway Code.

 

Others proposed legislating the need to put on safety gear while riding their devices. Dr Teo Ho Pin (Bukit Panjang) suggested that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) register all riders, bicycles, e-bikes and PMDs to facilitate enforcement.

 

In response to these concerns, Mrs Teo stressed that the new laws can be refined in future.

 

On the issue of insurance and compensation, she noted that there is a very broad range of users, from frequent to occasional riders, as well as the more affluent, to the less well-off users.

 

Mandatory insurance, which is not an insignificant amount to pay annually, comes at some cost to the rider, added Mrs Teo, who also noted that cities with a strong culture of using these devices also do not make it mandatory to buy insurance and instead, focus on cultivating safe and responsible behaviours.

 

On the calls to set varying age limits, Mrs Teo said that patrols by LTA officers in the last few months found that errant users were from all age groups. “It is, therefore, important to focus on education and enforcement,” she added.

 

While only e-bikes have to be licensed, the authorities will continue to monitor the situation and consider extending registration to all motorised devices.

As usual they only wait for problems or even injury to happen, then they implement measures or law?! Anyway, i wonder how could they track on all e-bikes and PMDs and to ensure they are comply with the law?

In summary, the pictures below provide clearer rule,

Confirm many will turn full-time.

 

I won't be surprised if they ban it altogether. No more of this nonsense. No need to tackle the issue either.

 

Rules will be broken when there's no enforcement. "Do anything but don't get caught" mentality is unstoppable.

Just get used to it lah. There are so many PMDs around. I can see every single day. Just a trip to the market across the road i can see a few people zipping around.

Most pple aren't a**holes or dangerous. 

 

If we want to go car-lite, this is definitely the way to go.
