Disabling of Automatic headlamp switch-on function on motorcycles

 

 

When motorcycles are in use, their headlamps must be switched on at all times. This is to make the motorcycles more conspicuous to all road users thus enhancing the safety of the motorcyclists.

 

Motorcycles registered in Singapore on or after 1st November 1997 must be equipped with an automatic headlamp switch-on function to comply with the above requirement.

 

Disabling of this function is not allowed.

I'm surprise to read that there r actually 22 ppl in this poll who do not ride with their headlights on. Considering those who have not read this thread, I'm sure there r more ppl out there not switching on the headlights.

 

Can u tell me what is bordering u?

1) very troublesome to on headlights (no excuse if ur bike is bought after 1997),

2) it can save fuels, rectifiers, batteries etc,

3) it doesn't make any difference anyway, if accident happens, it happens, hdlights no diff.

 

For reason 1, I dare say it is nonsense, it doen't take 1 sec to switch on hdlight. For reason 2, it is baseless, no scientifc proof at all. For reason 3, I challenge u, go hope into a car and drive it n try to c bikes from ur mirror, ask drivers ard u.

 

I'm even more surprise that some riders actually mod their bikes to add on a on/off headlight switch, what r u trying to achieve?

 

Studies have shown (from NTU), experience can tell (from those cars/vans/buses/lorries drivers of this thread), gahment impose it. So what else is not there?

 

Someone from the 22 ppl, pls enlighten me.

People ask me, "Why ride bike?" I ask them back :"Why drive car?"

Hi, you have not seen everythings, there are many people on the road riding their bikes at night wearing black/dark attires, no rear lights, riding in the middle lane at slower that traffic flow speed :sweat: :smile:

 

But...... only god knows why........ they are still riding and nothing happen :smile:

It doesn't make any difference whether a motorcyclist has the right-of-way or not, the rider is the one most likely to get hurt.

basically my bike when switched on, headlight comes on too. Who says swtiching on headlights in the day-time isn't useful.

 

It depends on a rider's sense of safety to how he/she wants to utilise the headlights during day time. Swtiching on ur headlights in the morning will enable other road users to betta judge your approachin distance n speed b4 they start to change lane.

 

Crossing a junction, your passing light is also a very useful device for u to utilise to warn other vehicles that u're approaching.

 

The Traffic Police Department have made headlights in the morning compulsory not because they want u to waste ur battery life. Would u rather waste battery life or ur life in braod day-light?

 

And yes, by not swtiching on ur headlights, u're liable for a fine.. like wad GodMachine has done; contributed to the welfare fund.

 

Well, its all up to one's riding habits and how much they conform to law in Singapore. Unless u have tonnes of $$$ to contribute, I suggest we obey the law n ride with ease.

y got so many variation? so many stories uh? not all bikes manufacture same. it's according to market/country requirement. not many countries required riders to on the head light during day.

 

just 1 question: bike with head light selector switch will fail inspection meh? like that all these years how ppl get their bikes pass the inspection uh :confused:

just curious, when starting the bike (esp. when parked overnite), is it easier to start when the headlight is off? or no difference whether headlight on or off?

Philosophy A: Ignore what everyone else thinks. Riding is a better way to get around. Ride paranoid and keep your skills sharp

 

Philosophy B: Ride with somebody who's better than you. You will pick up a handy trick or new skill just about every time you are out

 

Philosophy C: You don't need a big bike to prove ur passion for riding

After an initial resistance, I finally turned on my headlights in daytime. If it adds just the slightest visibility to me, I'll take it.

 

I usually turn it off when I stop, so there was one time I forgot to turn it on after I pumped petrol. Later I passed by a TP and the way he looked at me, I thought I forgot to put on my helmet! Later I found out it's my headlights. :lol:

(void *) &NHY;

 

We live in interesting times!

It is safer to on the light in the day.

At least it makes us more visible

Especially squeezing traffic at expressway and at cross junction.

In fact.... during daytime... I put my headlights on highbeam.... so that drivers can see me while I'm squeezing through...
