NTU puts speed limits for cyclists to the test

The Straits Times, October 20, 2016

Researchers from Nanyang Technological University are studying if proposed speed limits for bicycles and personal mobility devices (PMDs) are sufficient, even before these rules kick in next year.

The team from the university's Transport Research Centre is looking at whether the proposed limits give pedestrians enough time to react when a cyclist or PMD user comes their way.

They are also studying whether cyclists and PMD users have enough time to avoid a collision under these limits, which will be set at 15kmh on footpaths and 25kmh on cycling and shared paths.
