How many more of these do we need to see before the authority steps in?

Looking at the road now. There is lack of enforcement officers on the road except maybe Fong Fei Fei. Who gonna fine all these errant road users?
 
Re: Cyclist injured after hit by car at Bukit Merah Town Centre

In theory, it makes sense to police cyclists like pedestrians (jaywalking, for instance). Some will even argue for a licensing scheme for cyclist, class 0.5 perhaps.

I think practicality-wise, it is gonna be a nightmare.

Your thoughts, David?

Currently, our road problem (including all road users) arised from lack of enforcement. I advocate more enforcement by TP.

Licensing scheme for cyclist gonna be a nightmare depends on how wide the coverage will be (e.g. Bangla, young children, etc). Anyway, LTA said licensing scheme is backward looking.
Singapore: LTA's reply on why cyclists don't pay road tax - - Togoparts.com
LTA's full official reply:

We refer to your email on 17 April 2013 to REACH.
We appreciate and share your concerns for the well being of all road users, be they pedestrians, cyclists or motorists. Public roads are intended to be used by all road users, including cyclists and pedestrians. They are built and maintained using public funds collected from general taxes, including those who do not use motorised vehicles. All road users should use the roads responsibly with consideration for other road users. To have safer roads, we are reaching out via public education together with the Traffic Police as well as the Safe Cycling Task Force.
To share with you, like most other countries, LTA does not license bicycles. This is because majority of the people may use bicycles for leisure or recreational purposes. Thus, it is administratively cumbersome to licence and maintains the registration records of bicycles for the purpose of road tax collection.
Having exempted bicycles from registration requirements in Singapore since 1982, its re-introduction would not only be viewed as regressive but will unnecessarily subject bicycle owners to onerous requirements. At the same time, it does not sufficiently protect other road users due to the difficulty of enforcing such requirements. Licensing is therefore neither practical nor cost-effective. Developed countries like UK, Japan, USA, EU countries, Australia and New Zealand also do not require the registration of bicycles.
Apart from traffic measures we need the co-operation of all road users to create a safe travelling environment. Through its public education programmes, the Traffic Police (TP) has been constantly reminding motorists to drive carefully and look out for other motorists and pedestrians on roads. These public education efforts will be stepped up to remind all road users to play their part to make our roads safe for all. We have copied TP and the Singapore Road Safety Council (SRSC) in this email for their attention.
We thank you for your feedback. If you have other feedback on land transport related issues, please call our 24-hour Customer Service Hotline at 1800- CALL LTA (1800- 2255582) or send a SMS to 77LTA (77582).

Re: Cyclist injured after hit by car at Bukit Merah Town Centre

yesterday got 1 genius cyclist on tri bike aero bars riding along nicoll highway towards city just before traffic lights. for those who know wat is an aero bar, the brakes r on another part of the handlebar.

im just saying that if a car came out of suntec carpark without looking, there was no way that biker on his aero bars cld have braked. He wld have kena head on collision. he shld b on his brakes handlebar instead.

Really no idea how 2 tell these bikers to have common sense. Can afford a nice tri bike but no brain to think that they cannot stop in heavy traffic areas.

Then later on i was driving behind this same biker, he simply switch lanes without even looking. Well another hospital A&E visitor just a matter of time

Im a cyclist too but cannot stand it when i see other cyclist endanger themselves n other vehicles.
