Save Singapore's pre-July 2003 motorcycles

This petition had 9,532 supporters

On 6th April 2018, National Environment Agency (NEA) issued a ban that all Singapore motorcycles registered before 1 July 2003 will be disallowed in Singapore come 1 July 2028. Their unrealistic argument claimed that these 27,000 motorcycles, which makes up 21% of the total motorcycles population contribute to 40% of CO emission by all motorcycles, and 53% of all vehicular CO emission.

A collective group of motorcycle enthusiasts and owners of affected motorcycles met with NEA through representatives on 8 June 2018 and challenged NEA's statistics. A series of correspondences were also exchanged with NEA on the matter through our appointed law firm. Till date, NEA has failed to prove their statistics and admit that their ban is unjustified. 

We, hence are petitioning to NEA for the following:

  1. Remove the overarching ban against all motorcycles registered before 1 July 2003.
  2. To maintain in-use emission inspection standard as of 6 April 2018.

Failing which, we ask that NEA to:

  1. Provide the data on how their statistics on the CO emission was derived.
  2. Explain why motorcycles which are already certified EURO I or equivalent but registered before 1 July 2003 are also affected by this ban. 
  3. Explain what are all the contributing factors to air pollution in Singapore, including foreign contributors (foreign vehicles entering Singapore, airborne industrial pollution from neighbouring countries), pollution from ships berthed along Singapore coast, aviation pollution etc. This is to illustrate the actual pollution contributors in Singapore and to act as a comparison with the 27,000 motorcycles.
