Electric mother and child bicycle from Japan

Postby hapa-girl » Wed, 04 May 2011 8:09 am

Hi,

When we relocate from Tokyo in July, I want to bring my electric mother and child Bridgestone bicycle. It has a build-in childseat in the front and another childseat in the back. Anyone who has been to Japan will know what I mean. Are bicycles like this legal to use on the roads in Singapore?

Thanks for your help.

Electric bicycles are not permitted for use on Singapore roads.

Like a million other things, doesn't stop these million other things from happening though!

Not correct. Electric bicycles are allowed.

Thanks. Took a look at the website and it looks like my bicycle complies. I think its just a matter of getting it LTA authorised. It doesn't mention anything about having kids in the kid seats. I guess I will just have to figure that out when I get there.
