Mutual respect on the road saves lives


AS I use a motorcycle to commute daily, I fully support the proposal by the Road Safety Department to restrict motorcyclists to the left lane of highways to reduce crashes and fatalities involving riders.

I’m actually amused when I see riders of smaller motorcycles using the middle and right lane where cars are travelling a lot faster than them. This is dangerous not only to the rider but also to other road users. An experienced rider knows the dangers of using the main road and that he needs to be extra aware of his surroundings because he is less visible and prone to heavier injuries if he is involved in a crash.
