Here's a public service announcement for cyclists: Cycling on the expressway is a punishable offence.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on July 17 that it caught several errant cyclists on the expressways over the past two weeks.

Like these cyclists on the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) and Central Expressway (CTE):



Responses to LTA's post on Facebook were overwhelmingly in favour of the agency confiscating bicycles belonging to such errant cyclists.

LTA engages cyclists to share tips

The agency said it also engaged around 60 cyclists at the East Coast Park service road, Loyang Ave, Pasir Ris, and Tanah Merah Coast Road on July 17 to share cycling tips.



The Straits Times reported last month that there has been an increase in the number of cyclists who were caught riding on expressways.

44 cyclists were caught on expressways in the first four months of 2021. 50 were caught in the whole of 2020.

Those who are caught riding their bicycles on expressways can be fined up to S$2,000 or jailed for up to six months.

Cyclists can familiarise themselves with the rules for cycling on the roads here.
