  2. If you’re new to the city, buy a map. This will help you find your way to the destination you want to go.
  3. While on the road, stay cycling at the left side. According to Singapore traffic rules, bicycles should always keep to the left side of the street/highway so that other commuters will not be bothered that can sometimes lead to accidents.
  4. Make a signal whenever, you turn right or left or whether you are going to stop and slowing down. This is for the benefit of other bikers following you. Sometimes, drivers usually look at the bikers hand because hand signals are the only way that bikers can do to indicate a move.
  5. If you are going to drive bicycles by night, be sure that you have headlights and reflectors so that you’ll be having a safe trip.
