Ir. Ts. Dr. Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim, the Director General of MIROS said, “MIROS is looking into the license and number plate requirements for bicycles as it is a trend and interest for most communities.”

Upon hearing the suggestion, netizens had mixed reviews.

Cycle 1

This comment says, “Anyways, number plates doesn’t guarantee safety. Make separate bicycle lanes that can guarantee safety. Don’t take the easy and cheap way to solve a big problem.”

Cycle 2

This comment, on the other hand, reads, “A good suggestion. It’ll make it easier for the authorities to give out fines when there are number plates.”

What do you think?

Will installing number plates and administrating licenses for bicycles help reduce the risk of cyclist-related accidents on the road?

Let us know your opinions in the comment section.
