Own a Personal Mobility Device (#PMD)? Keep them off the roads for a safer ride!
From 15 Jan 2018, the LTA will strengthen regulations on the use of PMDs in Singapore, and tougher penalties will be carried out on PMD users caught riding on roads.
To deter errant riders, first-time offenders will face a higher composition sum of up to $500 for riding on major roads, and those caught riding on expressways will be charged in court. If convicted in Court, first-time offenders can face a fine of up to $2,000 and/or 3 months jail, while repeat offenders will face stiffer penalties. Check out the infographic below for more info.
Riding PMDs on roads (and expressways!) is an offence and puts you and other road users in danger.The LTA has been engaging PMD interest groups, as well as delivery services to remind their PMD delivery crew to #scootsafe.
