Here we have two cyclists caught dashing across red light, at a junction near JCube along Jurong Gateway Road (Uploaded by SG Road Vigilante)
From the footage, looks like these cyclists are not wearing helmets.
The video is also accompanied with some strong language by the camcar driver:
Camcar Driver (in Mandarin): 这两个XX来的。人家在过马路，#$%@$!@。这个是XX来的这种人！！
(Rough translation in English): These two people are XX!! Other people crossing the road! #$%@$!@. These two people are XX, these kind of people!
Are cyclists exempt from traffic rules?
Obviously not, because LTA has already defined a specific set of rules for Bikes, Electric Bikes, E-Scooters & PMDs.
While his strong language is dramatic, I can understand the camcar driver's frustration. Understandably, it is difficult to enforce these rules on non-motorised cyclists as they usually do not have license plates, and do not have to register their 'vehicle' with LTA. The repeated honking is pretty much all he can do - as a driver on the road, there's almost no way to properly identify these two cyclists.
Here's some reactions from fellow netizens on Youtube:
Safer roads for all.
What do you think we can do to help enforce these rules for all road users? Let us know in the comments below 🙂
