Safety Rules for Cycling in Singapore

PssT: It  says nothing about riding brakeless......

Here goes...

Singapore traffic laws allow cyclists to drive on the roads together with vehicles and disallow cyclists to travel along sidewalks or footpaths parallel to roadways. In order to safely and lawfully cycle in Singapore, a number of safety-oriented rules must be followed. Abiding by these rules, Singapore cyclists may reduce the high incidence of bike accident fatalities, reported to regularly surpass 15 per year, as of 2010.

Where to Cycle
In Singapore, all traffic circulates on the left-hand side of the road. Therefore, bicycles must also be ridden on the left side of the road, close to the left edge of the roadway. The law specifies that the bicycle must be close enough to the edge of the road so as to allow other vehicles moving at a faster speed to pass. If a lane has been designated for bicycles, it is illegal to ride a bicycle along any other part of the roadway or adjacent sidewalks. When multiple bicycles are traveling along a roadway, it is illegal for two or more bicycles to be ridden side-by-side in the same direction. The only exception to this rule is when one bicycle is passing another, which may be done on the right-hand side

During hours of darkness, bicycles must be outfitted with appropriate lamps. In the front, a white light must be visible from a "reasonable distance." Likewise, pedal tricycles and trishaws also need to have white lights that are visible from a reasonable distance. Bicycles must also have a red light or reflector at the back that is visible from a reasonable distance. On the other hand, it is illegal for a bicycle to have a red light facing frontwards or to have any kind of light other than a red one facing rearwards.

Cyclists must make officially regulated arm signals to communicate their intentions to nearby vehicles, and do so in a manner that allows traffic sufficient time to respond appropriately. Signals outlined in the Singapore traffic law include "stop," "slow down," "proceed right" and "proceed left." To signal a stop, a cyclist's right arm extends horizontally with the forearm vertical and the palm facing forward. To signal slowing down, a cyclist's right arm extends straight out, horizontally, with the palm facing down. Bending from the shoulder, the cyclists flaps the entire arm up and down several times. In order to signal a turn to the right, the cyclist's arm extends horizontally with the palm forward, just as in the signal for slowing, but without flapping the arm. A signal to turn left is done similarly, but with the left arm instead of the right one.

Towing and Bicycle Load
Singapore law does not permit towing, the conveyance of more than one person on a single-person bicycle. In addition, bicycles can not be towed by other vehicles along roadways. One lawful exception, which is not considered towing, is the carrying of a child under 12 years old within a "properly constructed seat or carrier." The maximum load on a two-wheel bicycle is 18 kilograms. In addition, the dimensions of the load on any bicycle cannot be so large as to obstruct the view of, or otherwise endanger, other drivers on the road. Finally, the load must be securely fastened to the bicycle.
