Your Grandfather’s Road?

1 min read
As conscientious road users, none of us should display an entitled mentality, even if the road is named after our grandfather! While jostling for space on the roads, cyclists and motorists have to learn to share the roads harmoniously.

In the next decade, cyclists here will enjoy an expanded cycling network, from 440km to almost 1,300km. Whether that translates to more people taking up cycling remains to be seen; if it does happen, motorists must be mentally prepared for it. Confrontations and incidents involving motorists and cyclists here and abroad show a lack of understanding and tolerance from both parties.

To reduce tensions on the roads, both motorists and cyclists need to understand and acknowledge each other’s limitations and ability. Here are some courteous and thoughtful driving behaviour that can help motorists and cyclists co-exist harmoniously on our roads.
