    Before anyone has any smart ideas that cycling in Singapore has no law... do take the trouble to read the follow. It is not just about saving you money...it might one day save your life or the life of another. Police close one eye but if they want to take action they can. I think also if you have a life insurance policy... better check about whether you can claim or not if you run foul of the law. I am wondering if you ride on the wrong side of the road and a car hits you.. I am wondering if your happy and friendly neighbourhood insurance company will let you claim if it ever came out you were cycling on the wrong side of the road, cycling on a foot path or at your housing estate that was suppose to be for walkers...NOT BICYCLEs.


    ROAD TRAFFIC ACT

    For this type, next time mentally prepare yourself ot push them down. I wont have any qualms to push or kick a cyclist down in order to ensure my own safety, or the safety of another child.

    I was hit by a bicycle when i just step on the road. You will be wondering how could possible hit by it. Cause that china woman cycle the opposite direction and my focus is on my right, not my left.

    Luckily she isn't travelling fast and also, my size is big enough to blk the impact. She also lucky enough that I didn't push her down. She say sorry to me but I still can't bother her much as I still have to look out for the oncoming car. I faster make my move across, just in case out of no where, another car come along n hit me this time.

    So, next time beware of this kind of cyclist. Too much in local, cycling opposite traffic direction. If I am a kid, I might suffer head injure.

    I am surprise when I got hit. But since the type hit me, I let it off. Furthermore, I already on the road, better look out for cars than quarrel with her.

    Got once, I saw a couple, speeding down the pavement, ringing like mad and ask ppl to give way. Actually I want to kick the guy down, he so rude n dangerous and pavement is not his cycling path. Another thing is that he is speed, so fast, how to avoid them if old ppl or young children?

    I might teach those bad cyclist a lesson one day. Send a msg out to them, rather then keep quiet and become their human target.

    So funny, such a threat is obviously unconsidered before it is made. You probably need more research in law.

    Go ahead and do it if you think it makes you happy heheheheeh I know that nothing will happen to me. I'm not so sure the same will be the case for you if you want to find trouble with me hahah!

    Agreed, I'll support you in forming such an opinion. Which is why i said we need to mentally prepare ourselves first, so that the next time it happens, you will not be too surprised to do it; you will actually be able to react in time, since it is already planned. It is similar to how people hone their reflexes during training so that when the event happens, in a split second the prior preparation will kick in

    Just look at cyclist when they enter a busway and a bus is entering: I have not seen a bus giving way to the cyclist (same direction), the cyclist had to cycle inside the busway and wait there till bus is leaving...


    HS
    I pity Bus Captains and passengers, every morning I drive past Corporation Drive about 5 to 7 cyclists against the traffic direction cycle right into the bus stop all the way to their work place. In one incident, the lady in the group hit someone and her friends threaten the poor guy. Hope you never travel by bus.
    The bus operators are not taking chances all PRC Bus Captains are trained before they are allowed on the road

    There is a reason why some people cycle in the opposite direction........it is safer! Think about it first.....if you don't understand the logic ask me

    Does it matter if it was a china woman or a local? Why the distinction?

    always blame yourself first before you even start to blame others.

    like that mah? i always cycle on road with the flow of traffic.

    i see those week end cyclist with full gear and expensive bikes also cycle with the flow of traffic.

    just read sammy's post, seems i am right about riding with the flow.

    As long the cyclist obey the rules, I dont bother to hurt them. If they against the rules and I feel threaten, I will defend myself by injuring them. Then I will call police and let the law take action, as to prove the law is there to protect us.

    I've been cycling since 2001 and so far so good.

    The trick is to cycling along with the flow, giving ample time for drivers to see you. Going against the flow is not recommended, seeing how the cars zoom past you can be unnerving, less reaction time if you pounce out from nowhere. If there's a car behind, move in a little into the double yellow line to allow him space to move past. Crossing the road? Try to see if there's a traffic junction with pedestrian crossing to do so. After all, car vs bike, the cyclists are at the losing end, even if I'm in the right, I'd rather not break a leg for a couple thousand dollars.

    I only fear too many cars like Balestier, in which, I'll get off my bike and push on the pedestrian path since there's lots of people too.

    haiz... loopholes used by people who knows the law... such sad case... so everyone should go and aim cyclists now? since nothing wrong rite, just tell the judge that he is cycling, so you can just pin him to the ground... knowing the loophole is 1, advocating everyone to do so is another.
