I got an arrest warrant for a minor traffic incident (Cycling on the PIE), this was my first time, and I didn’t know it was an offence. I didn’t get a court order and I’m a minor (16 years old). Will this warrant go on my criminal record? What can I do?

    Only convictions under registrable offences are recorded in the register kept by the Police. Such offences are listed in the Schedules of the Registration of Criminals Act. It depends on the specific details of the offence that you committed, but it is likely not a registrable offence. The three Schedules can be found at this link: https://sso.agc.gov.sg/Act/RCA1949#Sc1- More information on criminal records in Singapore: https://singaporelegaladvice.com/law-articles/criminal-records-in-singapore/
