We refer to the letters from Tony Lee (Apply tow truck-style tweak to bike-ferrying, wedding cars) and Ms Ng Hwee Ling (Booked, but officer couldn't say what's the right way to transport bike ) in the Straits Times on 11 and 13 December 2012.
Bicycles can be transported at the rear of a car, as long as the bicycle rack is installed and secured in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation. It must not block the rear view of the driver, the vehicle number plate or the vehicle lighting systems. The bicycle should also not protrude beyond the body or wheels of the car.
If the vehicle number plate is blocked by the bicycle or other fittings such as wedding decorations, motorists need to hang an additional number plate at the rear of the car. For safety, the bicycle rack should be removed from the car when not in used.
