Shahira Abdullah on Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
Mandating a theory test for power-assisted bicycle riders on roads is a “long overdue” step, said NMP Shahira Abdullah in Parliament on Tuesday (May 11). She asked that it be made easy for seniors to take, by offering it in various languages and in-person, and keeping the cost low. This would also benefit others who need to get around on PABs, such as the less able or delivery riders. On allowing more thorough security searches of public transport commuters, Ms Shahira said it is imperative that officers be well-trained, with proper protocols to guard against any implication of racial bias.
