Bad idea to let cyclists ride into mall

Sources: https://www.straitst...-ride-into-mall

The new Funan mall will feature a 200m cycling path that runs through and around it.ST PHOTO: LIM YAOHUI

 

I read with shock and dismay about how the new Funan mall will allow cyclists to cycle in the mall (New Funan mall lets cyclists ride through it, May 22).

 

This is a very dangerous idea as customers shopping at the mall will be at risk of injury.

 

Who will monitor the cyclists so they do not speed or ride recklessly?

 

It is bad enough that pedestrians have to deal with reckless and speeding cyclists. Now, even mall customers have to deal with these dangerous riders.

 

Furthermore, these cyclists will jostle with customers and ride their bikes into lifts, causing a lot of inconvenience.

 

For safety reasons, cyclists must not be allowed into malls.

Can't they park their bikes and walk in the shopping centre like everyone else?

 

Hopefully, other malls will not take Funan mall's cue.

 

I, for one, will not patronise a mall that allows cyclists to ride around in it. My safety is more important than my shopping. This will encourage me to shop online more and avoid malls.

I think in today age, there must be a balance in mobility and convinences. It is convinent to ride in a mall, but safety could be an issue. Our govt approach is usually trial and error. Try first, if there is a mistake they will improvise. Nothing wrong with that. This problem is not just us. Even countries like US is also facing the same problem.

Wonder if the mall's public liability insurance covers accidents caused by the bikes.

Seems nowhere is safe from this form of nuisance & terrors on wheels.
IMO, the only wheels permitted indoors are prams & disability mobility devices.

See no reason to go there to get blood boil.  Just buy from Aliexpress, TB, LZD, DX.....

 

Maybe bike shop there will make more $$ than computer/IT shops.
