Desmond Choo on Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
A theory test for power-assisted bicycle users to ride on roads will improve overall road safety, said MP Desmond Choo, but he called for a transition period so that delivery riders can meet the new certification requirement without a loss of income. Mr Choo also said delivery companies must take more responsibility for the road safety of their riders and others. He asked whether they will be held liable if untested delivery riders are allowed or deployed on the roads. He also suggested a review of payout structures and time afforded for deliveries, to be aligned with new rules.
