According to Traffic Police, there were two fatal accidents involving power-assisted bicycles in 2014, and one each in 2013 and 2012.
Speaking to a newspaper last year, senior lawyer Amolat Singh said that motorised bicycles are becoming an increasing “menace on the roads”, adding that “it is practically impossible” to track down the rider in the case of a collision.
Calling for tighter regulation of these vehicles, he said that the damages may be thousands of dollars if the personal injury is serious or incapacitating.
“The potential for serious bodily harm and death cannot be ignored, and the authorities must find a suitable response to mitigate the hazard posed,” the lawyer said.
