    i see MIROS is trying to add maybe compulary safety to bicycle. the more important aspect is how a motorist can claim damage(other than own insurance) if bicycle is wrong, they got no insurance, no where to trace, claim no i/c etc. just like attitude, having the best gadgets on a motorised or bicycle does not mean any safety if the person on the seat does not respect road safety. a group of 10 or more cyclist on a stretch of road should narrow down to 3-5 per group, limit by another 3-5 maybe 100ft or more apart. motorist can than have more time to overtake especially lorry/trucks which does not have the pick up like cars, causing congestion and not mention the patient to drive behind those cyclists. maybe should also pose a survey, to build a cyclist track, for kids, for amatuer 20-50km long, charge a “reasonable” fee and keep away fm motorist road.

      Bro, if there are anyone injured on the road by cyclist can lodge claim with “Motor Insurers’ Bureau” aka MIB.

      Don’t simply say tarak.

        Bro, MIB is only for bodily injury if a motor vehicle knocks into you and you must be able to identify the vehicle (must know vehicle plate number).

        Willie is asking who is going to pay for the vehicle damage if collided with the bicycle and it’s bicycle’s fault?

        Don’t simply answer

    Just ban the use of bicycle on highway.
    Shitty rempit already give enough trouble to other road user, now cyclist just add more fuel on fire.

      kenapa? it’s not like bicycles cause any traceable damage to the road infrastructure. the point of roadtax is to generate money for the country/city’s maintenance of roads

    Make it compulsory to use white day light & rear red blinker for cyclists whenever they ride on the road day or night. Safety for all.

    Please keep practicing for bicycle racing and exercise at the circuit, not public roads.

    It doesn’t even comply any road safety.

    The irrational hatred for a group of people is similar to the same nasty behaviour like a racist. Some feel like every car user is good and every cyclist is evil. Get some therapy and respect all road users. Drive and cycle safely. The emphasis has been lost on etiquette and many just want to shout about their rights.

    The emphasis must be on etiquette and not any group of road users thinking only they have a right on the road and no one else has.
    Every road user has to be respected.

  • For the past 2 or even 3 decades, Miros is a big joke and waste of time and money sticking agency… They have done countless surveys and had put forth useless, flip flop recommendations based on faulty cap ayam surveys, with kindergarten methodology and data compiled/analysed by ‘experts’ who do not ride motorcycles, and probably don’t even have a license for it.
