Current Bicycle and PMD rules

Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) Scootsafe The Active Mobility Advisory Panel

Its latest recommendations are from its second review to improve safety on public paths and a result of a survey of more than 6,000 people. It also took in feedback from about 100 participants, who cycled and rode different devices on public paths, on how to improve the current rules based on their experiences.

Based on the survey, 77 per cent of respondents supported lowering the existing speed limit from 15kmh on footpaths, with 35 per cent feeling it should be 8kmh and 19 per cent thinking it should be 10kmh.

As for the behaviour of cyclists and PMD users at road crossings, 39 per cent felt riders should dismount and push, while 60 per cent felt riders should either stop or slow down before looking out.

Most of those surveyed felt helmets should be mandatory for cyclists riding on roads, with 77 per cent in support of it.
