I thought education gave people brains?

More cyclists caught riding illegally on footways



SINGAPORE : The Traffic Police have clamped down on cyclists who flout traffic rules.

Their target is those who ride on footways, because accidents with pedestrians can result in serious injuries.

More than 600 summons were issued to cyclists for riding illegally on the footways in the first nine months of this year.

...

Riding on footways is currently only legal in Tampines. - CNA/ms



Wait a minute. How can you promote cycling when you ask people to ride on the roads when they have this fear that the road is inherently dangerous? Granted, I don't like riding on footways, but sometimes, it's safer. Much, much safer than riding on the road. Try Lentor Avenue heading towards Yio Chu Kang. When you meet the slip-road entering the SLE, you get what I mean.

This is epic fail. Epic, epic fail.
