Arrogance to blame for bad behaviour on the road

I agree with Mr Andrew Seow Chwee Guan ("Come down hard on unsafe cyclists, riders"; Oct 14).

Recently, my husband and I were walking in single file along a narrow path next to a construction site in Ang Mo Kio.

Suddenly, a woman on a motorised bicycle careened towards us from the opposite direction, from a blind corner. She hit my husband on the left arm before falling off her bike.

My husband started to help her up but was surprised when she jumped up and asked why we hadn't moved aside.

My husband then retorted that she should have slowed down instead.

The woman's behaviour is just one example of arrogance on the road. When the new laws on personal mobility devices on footpaths kick in, I hope the authorities will come down hard on recalcitrants.

Better yet, there should be a direct number we can call to send a message or video to report such cases.

This may deter the ugly behaviour we encounter on the road.
