Only approved low-powered motorised bicycles allowed on roads

Media Replies 30 Jan 2013

We refer to the letter from Ms Clara Chua, “Fast motorised bikes pose a danger” (The Sunday Times, 20 January 2013).

Motorised bicycles must comply with safety requirements. For the safety of cyclists and other road users, only low-powered models of motorised bicycles which are approved by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and affixed with an LTA seal are allowed on public roads. Such motorised bicycles have similar construction and performance characteristics as conventional pedal bicycles. They also travel at low speed and are designed to cut off the motor power when the bicycle reaches 25km/h or when the rider stops pedalling.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Traffic Police (TP) conduct enforcement operations against errant cyclists who contravene traffic rules. In 2012, about 1,250 cyclists were issued summonses for using unapproved motorised bicycles.

Members of the public can visit www.onemotoring.com.sg to obtain relevant information before purchasing and using a motorised bicycle.
