>Pedestrians urged to stay safe
新加坡规定行人靠左走
Singapore's Land Transport Authority issued the country's first-ever code of conduct for pedestrians.
新加坡陆路交通管理局近日发布了该国首个行人行为守则。
Pedestrians are urged to stay away, if possible, from paths they have to share with cyclists.
行人被敦促尽可能远离与骑自行车者共用的道路。
But if they must use these shared paths, they are advised to keep left unless they are overtaking another pedestrian.
但如果他们必须使用这些共用的道路,建议他们靠道路左边走,除非他们正在超过另一位行人。
Another good practice the authorities want pedestrians to adopt is to refrain from using their mobile phones while walking on shared paths. But Francis Chu, co-founder of cycling group Love Cycling SG, said the pedestrian code of conduct was unnecessary.
当局希望行人采取的另一个好的做法是,在共用道路上行走时不要使用手机。
"Formalizing keeping to the left while walking can cause some aggressive riders to shift the blame to the victim in the case of an accident," he said.
不过,新加坡自行车运动组织"爱骑单车"的联合创始人弗朗西斯•楚表示,行人行为守则没有必要。
He further pointed out that some pedestrians, such as the elderly and young children, may not be able to keep left and be alert at all times.
他说:"规定走路靠左会导致一些好斗的骑车人在发生事故时把责任推给受害者。" 他还指出,一些行人,譬如老年人和幼童,可能无法时刻保持左行及保持警觉。
