Do you know there are biking routes in Moovit?
Bike-only routes, Bike combined with public transport… Whatever you need.
But always remember riding the bike according to the regulations.
Let’s have a bit re-cap regarding the new mobility regulation alive since Sep.4.
If you cycle or ride an e-scooter or other PMDs, here are the 5 things you need to know:
1. WHAT IS MY SPEED LIMIT?
If you are riding your PMDs or bicycles on footpaths, your speed limit will be 10kmh, down from 15kmh currently.
2. WHAT ABOUT MOTORISED WHEELCHAIRS AND MOBILITY SCOOTERS?
A maximum device speed is 10kmh.
3. DO I NEED TO WEAR A HELMET?
All active mobility device users must wear helmets when riding on roads. But if you are cycling on a footpath, cycling path or shared path, and part of your journey requires you to cross the road or be temporarily on the road to avoid an obstruction, you do not need a helmet.
4. WHAT IF I’M TRAVELLING ON A PATH?
MOT “strongly advises” PMD users to wear helmets when travelling on paths although not compulsory, .
PMD users are not allowed to ride on roads or expressways.
5. DO I NEED TO STOP AT ROAD CROSSINGS?
Cyclists and active mobility device users must stop and look out for vehicles at road crossings before resuming their journeys. This will reduce the risk of accidents by providing these users and motorists with more reaction time.
