Fewer motorcyclists and their pillion riders died on the roads in the first six months of this year.
Between Jan and June, there were 35 motorcyclist fatalities.
Last year, there were 53 for the same period.
Speaking at the launch of this year's Ride Safe campaign, Minister of State for Home Affairs and Foreign Affairs, Mr Masagos Zulkifli, attributed the drop in motorcyclist deaths to measures
implemented by the Traffic Police.
He also urged all parties to make safety a priority when driving.
Two more driving centres have joined the Ride Safe campaign this year.
ComfortDelgro Driving Centre and the Singapore Safety Driving Centre, together with the Bukit Batok Driving Centre, have set up training circuits to provide motorcyclists with the chance to hone their riding skills.
Mr Masagos also flagged off a convoy of 600 motorcyclists with pillion riders on their vehicles to spread the message of safe riding.
