There’s an average of 40 personal mobility device riders every month who break the law by riding on the roads.

And this girl, who’s estimated to have been going at above 25km/h when she was caught on camera, is the latest in that statistic.

That incident took place along Bukit Batok Road to Bukit Batok West Avenue 3.


Personal mobility devices such as e-scooters are not allowed on roads in Singapore.

The Active Mobility Act law, which will take effect in the coming months, will require users to, among other things, ensure their PMDs adhere to a maximum weight of 20kg and a maximum width of 700mm.

They also cannot exceed a speed limit of 15kmh on footpaths and 25kmh on cycling paths and shared paths on the Park Connector Network.

Those who flout the law will face summons by the Land Transport Authority and other agencies like the National Parks of up to $5,000, or they can be jailed for up to 6 months.
