Bus captains say they are seeing more cyclists on the bus lanes, with many not keeping to the kerb side. They fear for the safety of cyclists and other road users when they try to overtake them. It is also common for bus drivers to have to overtake and re-overtake the cyclists. MP Melvin Yong shared his observations of this "dangerous cycle" as he called for stiffer measures to deter cyclists and power-assisted bicycle users from riding on the roads during peak hours. He also proposed ways to ensure that migrant workers have safer transport to work.
