More pavement cycling problems

Aussie Pete has some observations about the unhappy state of sharing the pavements on Woodlands Ave 7. He notes some progress... but is not optimistic that much will change.

My take: Any effort to change the behaviour of bicycle users needs to be compelling or it will not work. Many cyclists use the pavements now because it seems the safest option. This will continue until there is a safe option that is more attractive than pavements.

Part of the problem is that there's no culture of cycling on the roads in Singapore. So people don't know what they should be doing.

It's going to take a very long time to overcome this problem, probably 1 or 2 generations.
