As more cyclists take to pedestrian pathways, more needs to be done to tackle errant cyclists who speed and those who are involved in hit-and-run accidents with pedestrians.
A few years ago, my wife and my neighbour were knocked down by speeding cyclists in separate hit-and-run incidents in my neighbourhood.
Even now, I still see many speeding cyclists.
To control the speed of cyclists on paths they share with pedestrians, I suggest installing humps on pedestrian walkways, especially those near bus stops and residential areas.
Installing closed-circuit television cameras and speed detectors along these pathways could also be helpful in monitoring and deterring speeding cyclists.
I welcome more innovative methods if the authorities deem my suggestions unfeasible.
