In the video, it can be seen that the man, wearing a bright pink shirt was driving without a worry on the highway.

Following that, the man decided to head on to the shoulder of the road. Could it be that he saw that he was being filmed? Or could there have been a legitimate reason for him to be driving without a helmet?

Wear an Approved Helmet

In this day and age where there are many fancy and pretty helmets going around, it is important that your helmet is not just for show but also functional. The Singapore Standard is published in SS9:2014 and an approved helmet should have a TUV SUD PSB Test” label.

This will protect your head and brain, if you have any. Many motorists have attested to how the helmet has saved their lives.

The offence of “Rider failing to wear a helmet or wearing a helmet insecurely” carries three demerit points and a $150 fine.

It is also vital to wear appropriate riding attire: Other than an approved helmet, you should also have gloves, jacket, and closed footwear (technically lah, since learners would die-die have to wear these).

Let’s make the roads safer for all Singaporeans!
