Cyclists, PMD riders should slow down, stop and check traffic before crossing

Media Replies 21 Feb 2022 active mobility personal mobility device

We refer to Mr Kor Choy Yim’s letter (ST, 10 Feb 2022) on safe practices at zebra crossings.


We hope all road users can similarly follow Mr Kor’s lead to slow down when approaching a zebra crossing and be alert at all times.


While cyclists and Personal Mobility Device (PMD) users are not required to dismount at zebra crossings, they too must slow down, stop and look out for oncoming traffic before crossing. This improves safety for themselves as well as other road users who will then be able to better anticipate their movement.


Mandating that cyclists and PMD riders dismount at crossings could introduce additional risks, particularly for those with pillion riders, or are carrying loads. Seniors may also find it challenging if they must dismount their devices repeatedly.  


Safety is a shared responsibility and we need everyone to do their part to keep our paths and roads safe.  LTA will continue to work closely with the community and other agencies to promote safety awareness and civic responsibility.
