The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has been acting on recent complaints of errant e-scooter riders who have been riding recklessly at high speed along footpaths and on roads. As part of our enforcement strategy and effort, we have carried out several operations at various locations over the past weeks.
In an operation carried out yesterday (18 Oct) at Upper Aljunied Road, we stopped a rider who had been speeding and riding recklessly on the road. The rider’s e-scooter has been seized and he will be assisting LTA with further investigations.
In another operation carried out on 15 Oct, we had also seized the e-scooter of another rider who had been speeding and riding recklessly on the road, across a zebra crossing at the junction of Yishun Avenue 3 and Yishun Avenue 2.
We take this opportunity to remind all e-scooter riders that it is an offence to use their personal mobility devices on the road and we will not hesitate to take enforcement action against any rider found doing so.
