TWO RETAILERS FINED FOR SELLING ILLEGALLY MODIFIED E-BIKES

Two retailers have been fined $1,000 each by the LTA for selling illegally modified electric bicycles. LTA is taking a serious view of motorised bicycles plying the roads now, thus the heavy fine dished out to the retailers. E-bikes are allowed to be used on public roads but must meet a number of regulations, including a weight limit of 20kg and a maximum speed of 25kmh.

The retailers - Lim Geok Kay from Teck Bee Brothers Company at No. 220 Syed Alwi Road and Chia Thuang Chiew from CPP Trading at Block 731 Yishun Street 72 - were found selling e-bikes with throttles that could reach speeds higher than 35kmh without pedaling. Modifying the e-bikes with throttles are not allowed as this means the e-bike functions like a motorcycle. Motorcycle riders need to have licences, unlike cyclists. Having a throttle also means the e-bike can go faster than 25kmh without the rider having to pedal, which is a safety hazard both to the e-bike rider and other road users.

SERIAL TAXI CHEAT OWED $871.65 TO 15 TAXI DRIVERS, ORDERED TO PAY THEM COMPENSATION

A serial taxi cheat was fined $8,000 and ordered to pay compensation of $871.65 to 15 taxi drivers, after she pleaded guilty to 10 counts of fare evasions. The woman faces 40 days in jail for the fine and 10 days in jail for the compensation order if she is unable to pay both amounts.

Tan Mei Shan, 29, carried out her taxi cheating spree from January 2014 to October 2016. By the time she was done, she had cheated 15 tax drivers of fares from $25.10 to $105.60. She would board a taxi and request to make multiple stops during the trip to collect items or buy food. She would leave her phone number to the drivers, often saying she was returning to the vehicles, but became uncontactable after a while.

In some cases, she even said she would contact the drivers at a later date to pay her fare, but never did. Tan pleaded in court that she had depression and asked for leniency, and also stated that she had a few dollars with her and asked to pay the fine in installments.
