Risk of ‘Basikal Lajak’
We often heard in news broadcasts about the increasing use of ‘basikal lajak’ these days. It has become a kids’ activity and has led to many negative perceptions among the community.
In this article, we would like to share with you the risks of using a bicycle. Let’s read!
1. PLACEMENT OF THE SEAT IS HIGH
The seat is in poor condition and may result in spinal pain.
2. DOES NOT HAVE A BRAKE
Bicycle speeds are difficult to slow / stop due to no brakes. This is very worrying as it will risk the accident.
3. DOES NOT HAVE A BELL
It is difficult to attract the public in the event of any emergency.
4. DID NOT WEAR A HELMET
There is no special protection on the head and can increase the risk of injury.
IMPORTANT WARNING: Parents can be fined up to RM20,000 or up to 5 years imprisonment if found guilty of neglecting the safety of minors involved in bicycle activities.
Love your life and put safety first.
