Riding safely at Car-Free Sunday SG

We thank Mr Robin Yap Seng Bee for his feedback on Car-Free Sunday SG (Car-free Sunday can be made safer; Jan 31).

The safety of participants is a key consideration in the planning and organising of Car-Free Sunday SG.

In addition to signage placed along the car-free route to remind participants about safety and the responsible sharing of road space with other users, there are also marshals, security officers and volunteers on the ground to keep a lookout for unsafe riding practices.

We will also continue to work with our partner agencies to promote safe riding habits at our events.

Every road user has a role to play in ensuring his safety as well as others' so that the day out is a safe and enjoyable one for everyone.

Let us respect one another on the road and always be mindful of other users, especially when there are elderly people and young children present.
