THE case of Sam Ke Ting has made many of us wonder if we could also be charged under the Road Transport Act for accidentally knocking someone down while driving, causing their death.

In the amendments to the Act made in October 2020, S.41(1) – causing death by reckless or dangerous driving – was included as one of the chargeable offences for micromobility vehicles, including bicycles, electric bicycles and tricycles.
