PEDESTRIANS USE YOUR BRAINS BEFORE DEMANDING THAT CYCLISTS BE “LICENSED”

So it has come to my attention that there is this lady that wants bike licensing in Singapore. Before you speak, do think twice. How many bikes are there in singapore? Not a hundred, not a thousand.

Why do I see pedestrian on cycling path? On East Coast Park and on certain pathways? Do each and everyone of us need to get "walking license"?

FERNVALE TOWN COUNCIL STAFF USE LOANSHARK TACTICS TO SHAME OFFENDING RESIDENTS?

I am a resident of your ward. Are you aware of what your town councils guys are doing over here at Fernvale today? I know it's only right to give reminders that the spaces at the stairwells shouldn't be abused and bicycles, flower pots or anything that block the way should be removed. When I came back home I was informed by my mum that she was brought to attention by my neighbour that a piece of paper was pasted on the corridor naming my house unit as the culprit/owner of the pots! Whats the difference between you all and the loan sharks? Loan sharks also play the same "game" no?
