Cyclist receives $300 speeding fine for travelling at 27km/hr on a 10km/hr path

TL;DR – Poor cyclist travelling along the South of the 24km long Rail Corridor receives a speeding fine of $300 for going 17km/hr over the 10km/hr speed limit.

 

 

Yes. You heard right. You can get a speeding fine even if you’re a cyclist.

Here’s proof

Where did this incident take place?

The image did not precisely specify which part of the Rail Corridor (South) this incident happened. But the South Corridor stretches from Hillview MRT to Tanjong Pagar Railway station.

What is Reg4(2)(b) of the Parks and Trees Regulations (Cap 216, R1)?

To be honest, I didn’t even know such a thing existed either.

Let’s do a quick Google search.

Doesn't that means the cyclist got off relatively lucky with a $300 fine instead of the maximum $2000?

27km/hr is fast for a footpath

The cyclist deserves the fine. He or she’s travelling on a footpath at nearly 30km/hr! If the bicycle hits someone, an injury is inevitable.

I was thinking about this too.

    Audi driver flaunts his 1-litre turbocharged 'sports car' by revving loudly in the neighbourhood

    Imagine it is the weekend, and all you want is to get some rest in your peaceful, quiet and comfortable house before the workweek starts.  BUT NO. In the distance, you hear a low, noisy exhaust burbling sound coming from downstairs your block. And this is what you see: What's the first thought that comes to your mind? Frustration? Anger? Disappointment? You tell me.  What Happened? Apparently, this frustrated Bedok resident managed to take a video of this rowdy Audi driver that has constantly disturbed the estate's peace.  From afar or a single glance, the car's quad exhaust makes it appear as though the driver is driving an RS3, S3, or even a "Quattro tuned" Audi Sportback.  If it were any of those cars, the noisy exhaust would have been understandable.  But wait, here comes the twist: That "sports car" is none other than a 1-litre A3 Sportback. Putting Things Into Perspective The Audi A3 1-Litre Sportback has 114BHP and 200 Nm of torque, with 9.9 seconds for its 0 - 100km/h timing.  And the fact that a noisy aftermarket exhaust is equipped to this ordinary car definitely poses as an annoyance to Bedok residents.  Worse still, it pops and bangs even when its speed is <20km/h.  So do you think this Audi A3 has an illegal or LTA approved exhaust? Do you think his exhaust system is "operated"?  Netizens' Comments Sooner or later his car sure kena tow to the workshop. What's the point of stretching a 1-Litre engine to its limit? Damn, that escalated quickly.      ======== Receive a $10 PayNow transfer for every submission we publish on Facebook! Simply WhatsApp us ➡️ https://bit.ly/3c6JERA

    A higher power intervenes when a cyclist tries to break the law and cycle on the CTE

    A cyclist entering the CTE tunnel suddenly falls off his bike and onto the path of oncoming vehicles but manages to avoid causing an accident. Is this the work of a higher presence in the universe? 😱 A short clip of a cyclist cycling in the opposite direction inside a CTE tunnel shows exactly why there should be stricter enforcement of cycling restrictions and regulations. The clip starts with the camcar cruising down the tunnel, when the car in front of him suddenly brakes. It is then revealed that there is a cyclist in the tunnel going in the opposite direction. To avoid being hit by the car in front of the camcar, the cyclist suddenly stops as well, which causes him to accidentally fall off his bike. This gives the camcar a shock as he stops just in time to avoid hitting the cyclist, who immediately gets up and walks off. According to the driver, he claims that after this incident, he spots a second cyclist further down trying to enter the same tunnel as well.    Are cyclists allowed on expressways and tunnels? While it is no surprise that cyclists are allowed to ride on the roads (given that they follow the rules and the proper code of conduct while doing so), it is often unclear if they are allowed to ride in tunnels and expressways. According to the Road Traffic Act - Road Traffic (Expressway Traffic) Rules, any bicycle that is equipped with an electric motor and may be propelled by human power or by the electric motor with which it is equipped, or by both, is not allowed in road tunnels and expressway tunnels.  Additionally, according to the Road Traffic Act - Road Traffic (Expressways - Excluded Vehicles) Rules, users riding bicycles, tricycles, or trishaws are not allowed on expressways, including the KPE, MCE, and CTE tunnels.  This is because the expressways are meant for other motorists travelling at higher speeds, and cycling on these roads may cause fatal traffic accidents as drivers attempt to avoid hitting them. Cycling on expressways is considered an offence in Singapore and can result in a fine of up to $2,000 or a jail term of up to 6 months, or both.  So, the short answer to that question is no, cyclists are not allowed on expressways and tunnels.  Current cycling regulations in Singapore With the Active Mobility Act (AMA) in place since 2018, it dictates a set of rules and code of conduct to enable safer sharing of public paths among various users. The active mobility devices governed under this act includes bicycles, power-assisted bicycles (PAB), motorised and non-motorised personal mobility devices (PMDs) and personal mobility aids (PMAs). On top of riding on the roads, cyclists can also use various cycling paths, park connectors and footpaths around Singapore to get to their destination.  The full list of cycling rules and regulations while riding on the road can be found in a previous post: Netizens' reactions Can you imagine the dire consequences if the drivers hadn't stopped in time? 😱 More like the cyclist is lucky instead of the driver.  While there are laws and regulations in place to ensure that cyclists don't enter these dangerous areas, there should be stricter enforcement of these rules considering how there has been a rise in cases of cyclists on the expressways.  Otherwise, when accidents occur, the game of blame between cyclists and drivers will never end.     -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Driver vs driver in epic shouting match on the road

    Watch as these two drivers demonstrate their lack of basic driving etiquette in an epic shouting match on the road. What else can you expect from two angsty uncles on the road?  In this comical video, two drivers are seen engaging in a feisty shouting match with their vehicles still running on the road.  With their windows down, both men angrily hurl intense vulgarities and aggressive gestures. Aside from the extensive range of Hokkien vocabulary, it is hard to comprehend what both drivers are yelling to each other. As the fight continues, the camcar inches forward, which indicates that both parties are probably waiting at a junction.  Even as other cars start to move off, these two drivers never fail to maintain the intensity of the fight as they take turns creeping forward. Netizens' reactions Do you see the resemblance too? It would explain the foul temper of both drivers 😂 Aggressively sending their regards, if you ask me.  While I do like to watch videos of drivers getting into fights over nothing, it is not proper to road rage or to block the flow of traffic just to get a few vulgarities out. After all, what do these drivers gain besides infamy?   -------- Thinking of selling your car? sgCarMart Quotz guarantees the highest selling price for your car.

    Video footage of the Parliament accident: Lower your volume for this one

    There is finally video footage of the recent accident outside the Parliament House. For those who are unfamiliar with the accident, a Honda Vezel ran the red light and ended up getting T-boned by a BMW. This resulted in the Honda flipping on its side and getting wedged onto the road bollards, which shocked the female passenger in the camcar who witnessed the accident. More than a dozen individuals, including the camcar driver, got out of their vehicles to help. They were seen attempting to lift the Honda to an upright position in an attempt to rescue the victims.   The severity of the accident led to the deployment of the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). It was reported that 5 individuals were transported to the Singapore General Hospital. According to the Straits Times, the 5 individuals comprised of 2 male drivers aged 51 and 59, and 3 passengers aged between 28 and 61. They were all conscious during the transport to the hospital.  Netizens' reactions We wish all of the victims a speedy recovery!     ------- Witnessed an accident?
