Dear A.S.S. Editor

This mobility and e-scooter thing is just going too far and out of hand already. What possessed a man on an e-scooter to ride through the KPE Tunnel? It was reported that a person was seen riding an electric scooter along the road shoulder of a Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway tunnel early last Friday morning, based by a footage from an in-car camera.

The Police have said that they were aware of the incident, and urged anyone with information on the incident to make a police report on the case, so that appropriate actions can be taken. A 42-year-old taxi driver, who captured the incident on his in-car camera and declined to be named, said: “(It is) difficult to assess his speed as he was preparing to cut across the Upper Paya Lebar exit to continue his journey farther along the road shoulder. “I was going about 70 to 80kmh and he was slower than me.”

Based on Traffic Laws, personal mobility devices (PMDs) such as skateboards, e-scooters and hoverboards are not allowed on roads. Bicycles and other such types of devices are also not allowed on Singapore expressways. The person who rode the e-scooter on the KPE was just asking for trouble.
