SINGAPORE: Road safety has become top on the agenda for residents of the North East CDC following the fatal accident which killed two brothers more than a week ago.
In partnership with the Traffic Police and the Safe Cycling Taskforce, 1,200 students at Tampines Secondary School were given a half—hour talk during a morning assembly on safe cycling on Wednesday.
They were reminded on safety procedures such as making sure their bicycles are in order before setting off and knowing the right way to use hand signals.
This is part of an ongoing effort to promote safe cycling since 2010.
Tampines Secondary is the first school on board for this year and there are plans to roll out similar clinics to six other schools in Tampines.
Safe Cycling Taskforce president Steven Lim said the purpose of this clinic is to educate children on safe cycling.
Balamurugan Krishnasamy, principal of Tampines Secondary School, said: "We do have a lot of cyclists in Tampines itself so we feel that it is important to ensure that safety is a personal responsibility, not just as a cyclist, but as a road user as well."
