SINGAPORE - The authorities are looking into whether to impose speed limits for cyclists on park connectors, Senior Minister of State for Transport Josephine Teo said on Friday (Jan 29).
A committee headed by Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Parliamentary Secretary for Education and Social and Family Development, will look into the issue.
Mrs Teo revealed this in a reply to Jurong GRC MP Tan Wu Meng's question in Parliament on measures to protect vulnerable people on footpaths such as children and the elderly.
The question was prompted by a recent incident of a cyclist crashing into a three-year-old boy at the Sungei Serangoon Park Connector.
The child lost a tooth, and suffered from a torn lip, a cut on his chin and abrasions on his head and knee. His parents shared the incident online and it went viral.
A police report was lodged.
