    Sorry hor, police can do much on me for cycling on the road with helmet on. On the pavement, I doubt I will cycle on it cause I hate those who cycle on it n keeps ringing the bell.

    Talk abt bicycle. I know why ppl cycle on the pavement cause the MRT stations got place for them to put their bicycle. What if that been removed, will it solve half of the problem?

    It's time to sell away your car and get a bicycle, more cost effective.
    Park your bicycle outside the MRT station and take the MRT, no jam.
    No point giving away all your hard-earn money just to past the stupid CTE lah

    what's wrong with cycling on pedestrian pavement? the pavements are at least 1.5m wide, some wider than 2m, more than enough space for everyone. in japan pedestrians share the path with cyclists within 1m width, no one complains about it but i realise most people in singapore like to walk in the centre of the path, leaving not much space at the sides even for faster walkers to overtake

    You go n read up y can't cycle on pavement. Only tampiness allow, other area, kenna fine. Cycle on pavement is ok to me provided u don't speed n keep ringing that stupid bell. Don't tell me when you drive n want to over take other, you keep horning other car to give way n u zoom pass. Don't make sense mah, you want to over take, go by the side la. For me, if I want to cycle on pavement, don't know hit how many ppl liao. My avg speed is 15 to 20km/h (Can be faster if wanted) That's why I cycle on the road, keep to the side (targetting double yellow line) n also, stop if red light (even for small road) Be safe to other n yourself too.

    i know there's a rule against cycling on the pavement, i don't understand why there's a need for such a rule when our pavements are so wide. and i know some petty pedestrians like to take advantage of this rule to get rid of cyclists on the pavement, on the other hand cyclists in singapore (just like drivers) are indeed generally quite rude. the cycle just go on and on and on btw, OT liao lah, ERP! ERP! ERP! (maybe in future cyclists will need to pay ERP also ... heh heh heh)

    OT a bit....It's quite sad actually.....while the gov or town council can spend millions to build world class facilities with our $5 ERP.....you only need a few 3rd class people to abuse it....then the majority rest will suffer the same fate....not single out on the pedestrian pavement only....other things like parks and gardens, buses, MRT, LRT, toilet, stadium etc etc

    It is truely against the local laws to cycle on the pavement. When I was very young, I once did that and was stopped by a police on motorbike. I ask him since when have this rulling. With a stern look, he said in loud: Since your grandfather's time. Now give me your ic!

    I told him singapore is not a safe country and hence i do not find it safe to carry my identity card around. He asked what do I have? I told him I had $5 and he was free to take it. He gave me a warning then.

    So, guys, remember, the traffic laws are laid since our grandfather's time. Dont challenge the their forefathers.

    definitely...im good citizen. haaa
    i like to read what they have to say everytime they implement something.
    and the usual nonsensical banter in forum page where many singaporeans
    like to complain about very minor inconvieniences, like implementing bank
    transactions for hell notes. Makes my day.
