Shell Discriminates Against Bikers

Shell's latest safety awareness campaign requires all motorcyclists to dismount their motorbikes and stand beside the vehicle while refueling. Station attendants cite "fire hazard" as the main reason for this strange policy.

The management who came up with this ruling are apparently all drivers of motorcars who do not understand the difficulties faced by bikers during refueling. They include

It is almost impossible to fill a full tank with the bike being tilted at an angle while it is on the side-stand.

Those who attempt to hold the bike upright and refuel will also face the extremely high possibility of their vehicles toppling over.

Incidences of petrol spillage due to overflow will increase as it is difficult for the rider to gauge the level of petrol in the tank while standing up.

Pump attendants will usually not assist bikers refuel, instead channelling their full and undivided attention on helping drivers of motorcars.

Surprisingly, this policy does not apply to the drivers and passengers of motorcars who can remain seated in their vehicles when the station attendants are refueling their vehicles. Cars are not manufactured with an impregnable shield that will protect the driver and passengers in an event of an external fire, and they are subjected to the same risks as motorcyclists straddled on bikes.

Although Shell has the support of the National Fire Prevention Council, Singapore Civil Defence Force and the Singapore Traffic Police, we would like to emphasize to Shell that no such discrimatory policy against motorcyclists exists for Caltex, ExxonMobil and Singapore Petroleum Company.

We can only conclude that this policy discriminates against bikers, and we thus appeal to Shell to withdraw this policy, if not at least review it as soon as possible.

    Why don't ask car driver/passengers to leave the cars too when refuelling.I will not dismount from my bike when refuelling if the cars owners can do it when inside their cars.

    Shell : Are you doing this for the sake of doing it? Is this a monkey-see-monkey-do action, with absolutely no good reasons? Can you advise how many motorcycles over the years of operation Shell had in Singapore, have been refuelling while on the motorcyc

    This is a very discriminating decision made by the Shell management. Such ruling should be taken away before the news brings down the well - build name of the company.

    Drivers must get out of their car while refuelling. Pilots must get out of their plane while refuelling in mid-air. SCHUMACHER must get out of his F1 car while refuelling in a race. Stupid right?! Well Shell, you've just proven to us you are. MOBIL, ESSO
