Cyclists are taking to social media to complain about the ambiguity of new traffic regulations, some of which give police leeway to call violations on a case-by-case basis.

To curb bike-related accidents, a revised traffic law that took effect Monday obliges cyclists aged 14 or older who are caught committing certain traffic violations twice or more in a three-year period to attend a safety seminar. If they refuse to attend the seminar, they face a fine of up to ¥50,000.
