Karachi cyclists required to follow these rules during riding in lockdown
The cyclists must follow 12 laws. The circular says that any breach would make the cyclists liable for prosecution under applicable traffic law.
Under the new SOPs, riders were asked to test their vehicles, properly inflate tyres, and verify that the brakes are working before riding. It is mandatory to wear a helmet and to practice social distancing.
If riding at night, wearing something bright reflecting light, like neon or fluorescent lights is a must.
Reflectors on the bike should be present as well as head gear.
The circular instructs riders to have at least one hand on the handlebars at all times and only carry items in a backpack or bike carrier. They are required to be careful about road hazards such as potholes, broken glass or puddles.
The road laws must be adhered to. So riders will stick to the road’s left lane and travel straight ahead.
The final instructions are to remain alert before turning, and look.
