Look at this cyclist at the Pasir Ris pedestrian crossing. He was cycling an electric bicycle without a protective bicycle helmet which is a must for those riding one on the road. See the Road Traffic (Bicycle) Rules below;
ROAD TRAFFIC ACT
(CHAPTER 276, SECTION 140)
ROAD TRAFFIC (BICYCLES) RULES
2. In these Rules, unless the context otherwise requires —"bicycle" means a pedal bicycle, a pedal tricycle, a trishaw or a power-assisted bicycle;
"power-assisted bicycle" means a bicycle that is equipped with an electric motor and that may be propelled by muscular power or by the electric motor with which it is equipped, or by both.
13. — (3) Every person who rides a power-assisted bicycle on a road or who is carried as a pillion passenger on a power-assisted bicycle on a road shall wear securely on his head a suitable protective bicycle helmet.
So what's the use of having a rule where people do not obey and no one really enforce it?
